DTN COMMENTS: The country is slow to start this morning following
yesterday's light to moderate trade in the South at $119, generally $1
higher than last week's weighted averages. The North remained fairly quiet
yesterday so we should see packer inquiry improve in that area as the day
progresses. Asking prices are around $121 plus in the South, and $190 to
$193 in the North. Beef cutouts are expected to be lower, with light to
moderate box movement.
NOTE: Feedlots are encouraged to call DTN with any cattle sales, at
