DTN COMMENTS: The country is slow at midday with just a few scattered bids 
reported, but we expect packer inquiry will continue to improve as the day 
progresses. Having said that, it is possible that significant trade volume 
could be delayed until sometime Friday. Asking prices are around 124.00 plus 
in the South and 195.00-197.00 in the North. 

Beef cutouts are higher at midday (Choice 205.64 +0.34, Select 200.99 +1.38) 
with light to moderate box movement (56.53 lds of choice cuts, 29.67 lds of 
select cuts, 9.18 lds of ground). Live and feeder futures are solidly higher 
near the top of the noon hour, supported by further short-covering, 
technical-buying and ideas of greater packer spending by the end of the 
week.
