DTN COMMENTS: Packer inquiry is generally light near midday, though buying 
interest seems a bit more serious in the North.  Trade volume on Tuesday was 
light to moderate in most areas (e.g., Nebraska, 19,642 head at $119.88/$188.38;
Kansas, 10,716 head at $118.12; Texas, 4,267 head at $117.98; Iowa, 8,543 head 
at $119.49/$189; Colorado, 984 head at $120.50), and we think buyers would like 
to own more stock before retiring for Thanksgiving and football.  Asking prices 
on the balance of showlists are around $120 in the South and $192 plus in the 
North. 
     Beef cut-outs at midday are modestly higher, up .26 (select, $108.91) to 
.29 (choice, $208.92) with moderate box movement (ch: 52 lds; sel: 31 lds; 
trim: 16 lds; ground beef: 19 lds).  Live and feeder futures are sharply higher 
in late morning business thanks to pre holiday short covering and recent cash 
strength.
