DTN COMMENTS: The country is quiet this morning, with bids and asking
prices not yet established, and we look for a typically slow Monday as
packers work to collect new showlists. The majority of last week's trade
took place on Wednesday and Thursday, with Northern dressed deals marked
at 237.00-240.00, mostly 237.00, $3.00 lower. Live business in the South
was at mostly 148.00, $2.00 lower. Given last week's limited trade volume
we expect cattle buyers are short-bought, but significant business will
probably be delayed until Wednesday or later. Beef cutouts are expected to
be mixed with light box movement.
