DTN COMMENTS:  Cattle country remains very quiet at midday with just a few 
bids noted here and there. Significant trade volume is not likely to surface 
until sometime Friday. Asking prices remain firm around 150.00 in the South 
and 236.00 plus in the North. 

Beef cutouts are mixed at midday (Choice 244.82 +0.58, Select 233.53 
-0.07), with light box movement (38.72 lds of choice cuts, 11.70 lds of 
select cuts, 7.96 lds of trim, and 8.94 lds of ground). Cattle futures are 
sharply higher with the exception of spot August feeders. Note that August 
expires at midday and is now trading some lower. Most cattle contracts are 
bounding significantly higher thanks to short covering and cash sale 
concerns.
