DTN COMMENTS: A light trade is being reported in parts of Texas this morning 
at $124, fully steady with last week's weighted average. Packer inquiry 
should continue to improve as the day progresses. Asking prices are around 
$126 plus in the South, and $198 to $200 in the North. Beef cutouts are 
expected to be higher with light to moderate box movement.
