DTN MORNING COMMENTS: It looks like it will be a typically
quiet Monday with both packers and producers busy taking
inventory. Bids and asking prices will not likely be
established. Significant trade volume will probably be delayed
until Wednesday or later. Beef cutouts are expected to be
higher with generally light box movement.
