DTN COMMENTS: The country is slow to start this morning, so far bids remain
very elusive. Asking prices are around $108 in the South, and $178 plus in
the North. Packer inquiry should improve as the day progresses, but having
said that it is very possible that significant trade volume will be delayed
until sometime Thursday or Friday. Beef cutouts are expected to be higher
with light to moderate box movement.
