DTN COMMENTS: The country is slow to start this morning following
yesterday's light to moderate movement. Some asking prices remain firm
around $123 in the South, and $200 in the North. More business should need
to take place either today and/or tomorrow. Beef cutouts are expected to be
higher with light to moderate box movement.
So far this week Northern dressed deals have had a range of $195 to $198,
mostly $197 to $198, steady to $1 higher than last week's weighted average,
basis Nebraska. Southern live trade has had a full range of $117 to $122,
mostly $121 to $122, generally $1 to $2 higher than last week's weighted
