DTN COMMENTS: The country is quiet this morning following a light business
that took place yesterday. Live deals ranged from $113 to $112, roughly $7
to $8 lower than last week's weighted averages. A very light scattered
dressed trade took place at mostly $180, about $9 lower than last week's
weighted average basis Nebraska. Asking prices today are around $114 to $115
in the South, and $183 plus in the North. Beef cutouts are expected to be
lower, with light to moderate box movement.
