DTN COMMENTS: The country is slow to start this morning, but packer inquiry
should improve as the day progresses. Asking prices are around $157 in the
South, but still not established in the North.
A light to moderate trade developed in parts of the South yesterday at $155,
fully steady with last week's weighted averages. Beef cutouts are expected
to be lower with light to moderate box movement.
