DTN MORNING COMMENTS: It looks to be a typically quiet Monday 
morning with both buyers and sellers busy taking inventory. 
Bids and asking prices will not likely be established today, 
and significant trade volume will probably be delayed until 
Wednesday or later. Beef cutouts are expected to be mixed with 
generally light box movement.
