DTN COMMENTS: A typically quiet Monday morning with bids and
asking prices not established as of yet, and significant trade
volume will likely be delayed until the second half of the
week. Beef cutouts are expected to be mixed with generally
light box movement.
For the week ending April 10, 2021, Imported Beef Passed for
Entry in the U.S. totaled 37,557, 96.69% of the previous week
and 95.19% of the 4-week average.
