DTN COMMENTS: Packer inquiry is improving at midmorning with a few more bids 
on the table. The Fed Cattle Exchange Auction that just took place had a few 
deals marked at 109.00, and that has moved some to move bids up to 110.00 in 
the  South. A few asking prices are said to be around 112.00-113.00 in the 
South, and 178.00-180.00 in the North. It is possible that significant trade 
volume may be delayed until later in the week. 

The Fed Cattle Exchange Auction report today listed a total of 919 head, with 
230 actually sold, 386 head listed as unsold, and 303 head listed as PO 
(Passed Offer). The state by state breakdown looks like this: KS 430 total 
head, with 230 head sold at $109.00, 105 head unsold, 95 head listed as PO 
($109.00); NE 151 total head, with 0 head sold, 151 head unsold, and 0 head 
listed as PO; TX 338 total head, with 0 head sold, 130 head unsold, and 208 
head listed as PO ($109.00); CO no cattle reported; IA no cattle reported;
