DTN COMMENTS: The cash cattle market is very quiet at midday with buyers 
pretty much sitting on their hands until Thursday or Friday.  Although 
asking prices are not well defined, some feedlot managers are clearly 
pricing cattle higher (e.g. 123.00-124.00 basis the South). Producers are 
hopeful that the combination of tight fed supplies and improving demand will 
help boost cash sales by the end of the week. 

Beef cutouts are higher at midday (choice 191.72 +0.81, Select 190.46 +0.06) 
with light to moderate box movement (29.69 lds of choice cuts, 13.59 lds of 
select cuts, 13.99 lds of trim, and 8.65 lds of ground). Cattle futures are 
significantly higher supported by short-covering a firm cash expectations.
