DTN COMMENTS: The country is slow to start today following active live trade
in Texas yesterday all at 124.00, $1.00 lower than the previous week. A
lighter trade developed in Kansas also at 124.00, but estimates are varying
on just how many head was moved there. The North remained very quiet. Today
asking prices are around 125-126 in the South, and 203+ in the North. Beef
cutouts are expected to be mixed on light to moderate box movement.
