DTN COMMENTS:  The country is quiet this morning with bids and asking 
prices not fully established as both producers and packers are busy 
counting heads. Last week cattle buyers waited until late in the day on 
Friday to fill showlists and some were forced to pay higher money. Live 
sales in the South ranged from $155.00-156.00 $3.00-4.00 higher. While 
Northern dressed business was marked at mostly $245.00, generally $3.00 
higher than the previous week basis Nebraska's weighted average. 
Significant trade volume this week could be delayed until Wednesday or 
later. Beef cutouts are expected to be lower with light box movement.
