DTN COMMENTS:  Other than a few bids in Nebraska, the country is fairly 
quiet this morning following yesterday's light business. Best early guesses 
are that about 7,000 head traded in Nebraska at 249.00-250.00, $6.00-7.00 
lower than last week's weighted average. Kansas also moved around 7,000 head 
at 156.00-157.00, while only around 400 head traded in Texas at 157.00, 
$7.00 lower. Asking prices on the remainder of showlists are around 158.00 
plus in the South and 252.00 plus in the North. 

Beef cutouts are mixed at midday (Choice 242.52 +.11, Select 230.56 -.57) 
with light to moderate box movement (34.60 lds of choice cuts, 19.44 lds of 
select cuts, 17.58 lds of trim, and 18.77 lds of ground).
