DTN MORNING COMMENTS: It looks like it will be a typically quiet 
Monday, as both packers and producers are busy preparing for the week 
ahead. Bids and asking prices won't be published until later in the 
week. Significant trade volume will likely hold off until the second 
half of the week. Beef cutouts are expected to be higher with 
generally light box movement.
