DTN COMMENTS: Packer inquiry is light to moderate near midday with just a few 
scattered bids in several states.  Significant business could be delayed until 
Thursday or Friday, but both sides would probably like to get things wrapped up 
by tomorrow in order to clear the deck for a longer Labor Day weekend.  Asking 
prices are around $155-156 in the South and $245-248 in the North.  
     Beef cut-outs at midday are lower (choice: $247.84, off .64; select: 
$238.13, off .35) with light to moderate box movement (ch, 59 lds; sel, 40 lds; 
trim, 17 lds; ground beef, 21 lds). For the most part, cattle futures are 
sharply lower (though soon-to-expire-spot contracts are holding closer to 
unchanged). Selling pressure seems tied to long liquidation, demand 
nervousness, and thin volume.
