DTN COMMENTS: Cattle country is quiet at midday as packers complete their rounds
collecting new showlists.  The pre-Christmas offering appears to be generally 
larger than last week, especially in the South. A few asking prices have been 
voiced around $162 in the South and $255 plus in the North.  Needless to say, 
both sides would like to complete marketing chores by Wednesday afternoon.
     Beef cut-outs at midday are moderately higher (ch: $239.23, up .66; sel: 
$230.37, up .49) with light box movement (ch, 50 lds; sel, 19 lds; trim, 11 lds;
ground beef, 9 lds). Cattle futures are moderately higher in late morning 
action, supported by follow-through buying and pre-holiday short covering.
