DTN COMMENTS:  A few more bids are now on the table in Nebraska and Texas at 
midmorning, in other areas packer inquiry is very limited. It is looking 
like significant trade volume could possibly be delayed until Thursday or 
later. Asking prices are around $116 in the South and not fully established  
North as of yet. Beef cutouts are expected to be higher with light to 
moderate box movement.

The Fed Cattle Exchange Auction today listed a total of 1,199 head, of which 
409 actually sold, 790 head were listed as unsold, as they did not meet the 
reserve prices, that ranged from $114 to $116. Opening prices ranged from $112 
to $113.50, high bids ranged from $114 to $114.25. The state by state
