DTN COMMENTS:  Packer inquiry remains very limited at midday, following 
yesterday's light trade. Live deals ranged from $113 to $112, roughly $7 to 
$8 lower than last week's weighted averages. A very light scattered dressed 
trade took place at mostly $180, about $9 lower than last week's weighted 
average basis Nebraska. Asking prices today are around $114 to $115 in the 
South, and $183 plus in the North. 

Beef cutouts are lower at midday (choice 233.55 -1.62, select 224.06 -1.07) 
with light to moderate box movement (24.67 lds of choice cuts, 8.19 lds of 
select cuts, 16.79 lds of trim, and 5.84 lds of ground). Cattle futures near 
the top of the noon hour are sharply lower on both live and feeder issues.
