DTN COMMENTS:  The country is rather quiet this morning with just a few bids 
on the table in Kansas, but we expect packer inquiry will start to improve 
as the day progresses. The South has posted some asking prices of around 
125.00 on a live basis. It is very possible that significant trade volume 
could be delayed until sometime Thursday or Friday. Beef cutouts are 
expected to be higher with light to moderate box movement.
