DTN COMMENTS: The country is quiet this morning, but packer inquiry should
start to improve as the day progresses. Asking prices are around $142 in the
South, but not established in the North. Having said all of that, it is
possible that some light trade may develop at some point today and/or
tomorrow. Beef cutouts are expected to be higher with light to moderate box
