DTN COMMENTS: The country is slow to start this morning, with just a few
bids on the table, packer inquiry should improve over the next several
hours. Having said that it is very possible that significant trade volume
could be delayed until sometime Friday. Asking prices are around $121 to
$122 in the South, and $190 to $192 in the North. Beef cutouts are expected
to be lower, with light to moderate box movement.
