DTN MORNING COMMENTS: It looks to be a typically quiet Monday 
morning, with both buyers and sellers busy taking inventory, 
and collecting new showlists. Bids and asking prices have yet 
to be established. Significant trade volume will likely be 
delayed until Wednesday or Thursday. Beef cutouts are expected 
to be lower with generally light box movement.
