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.
