DTN COMMENTS: The country is slow to start this morning, and packer inquiry
should start to improve over the next several hours. Asking prices are
around $110 in the South but remain sketchy in the North. Light business
developed in parts of Kansas and Texas yesterday with live deals at $106,
generally steady with last week's weighted averages. A very light scattered
trade took place in Nebraska and Iowa, mostly live deals at $103 with a few
at $104, mostly $1 lower than last week's weighted average basis Nebraska.
Beef cutouts are expected to be higher with light to moderate box movement.
