DTN COMMENTS:  Feedlot country is generally quiet at midday with limited 
packer inquiry suggesting that significant trade volume will once again be 
delayed until Friday. Asking prices are around 163.00 in the South, and 
258.00-260.00 in the North. Indeed, seller psychology is no doubt being 
fortified by sharp gains in cattle futures this morning.

Beef cutouts are lower at midday (Choice 260.18 -.93, Select 248.48 
-1.40) with light box movement (44.67 lds of choice cuts, 24.82 lds of 
select cuts, 9.94 lds of trim, and 8.86 lds of ground). Cattle futures 
started out sharply higher on the opening bell, supported by aggressive 
short covering and cash premiums. It will be important to see if spot June 
can move above overhead resistance near 154 on the close.
