DTN MORNING COMMENTS: It looks to be a rather quiet Monday with 
packers and producers preparing for the week ahead. Bids and 
asking prices are not established, and probably will not be 
until Wednesday or later. Significant trade volume will likely 
be delayed until the second half of the week. Beef cutouts are 
expected to be lower with generally light box movement.
