DTN COMMENTS:  Light trade is evident in several areas at midday. While the 
cash market remains unestablished, business so far appears to be near steady 
in the North and several dollars lower in the South. Psychology seems to be 
turning somewhat defensive thanks to lower futures and faltering beef 
cutouts. Nevertheless, many showlists continue to be priced on a firm basis 
(e.g., 170.00 in the South and 268.00-270.00 in the North). 

Beef cutouts are lower at midday, especially choice product (Choice 251.77 -
1.58, Select 239.17 -.24) with very light box movement (39.82 lds of choice 
cuts, 14.42 lds of select cuts, 9.43 lds of trim, and 10.64 lds of ground). 
Cattle futures are under pressure at midday with triple digit losses evident 
in nearby live contracts.
