DTN MORNING COMMENTS: This Monday morning looks to be typically
quiet, with both packers and producers busy taking inventory,
and setting up 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
mixed, with generally light box movement.
