DTN MORNING COMMENTS: It looks like it will be another quiet 
Monday. Bids and asking prices are not likely to be established 
until later in the week, as both buyers and sellers are busy 
taking inventory and won't look up from their tally sheets 
until later in the week. Beef cutouts are expected to be mixed 
with generally light box movement.
