DTN COMMENTS: Although buying interest appears to be light to moderate at 
midday, we haven't seen much in the way of actual business. Firm asking 
prices, higher cutouts, and spring optimism may delay significant trade 
volume until sometime Friday. Some asking prices are around 125.00 in the 
South and 200.00 plus in the North.

Beef cutouts are significantly higher at midday (choice 219.75 +1.22, select 
204.91 +1.76) with light to moderate box movement (41.71 lds of choice cuts, 
26.94 lds of select cuts, 0.00 lds of trim, and 16.60 lds of ground). Cattle 
futures are mixed, with most of the buying interest evident in spot 
contracts.
