DTN MORNING COMMENTS: It looks to be a typically quiet Monday 
with both buyers and sellers busy taking inventory and 
preparing for the week ahead. Bids and asking prices are not 
established, and probably will not be until Wednesday or later. 
Significant trade volume will likely be delayed until the 
second half of the week. Beef cutouts are expected to be higher 
with generally light box movement.
