DTN COMMENTS:  The country is fairly quiet at midday with just Regionals in 
the North placing a few scattered bids on the table. In all other areas bids 
remain very scarce. Asking prices are around $112 to $113 in the South, and 
$178 to $180 in the North. It is looking like it could be another round of 
late week trade. 

Beef cutouts are higher at midday (choice 218.49 +0.51, select 191.43 +0.06) 
with light to moderate box movement (28.82 lds of choice cuts, 10.32 lds of 
select cuts, 5.25 lds of trim, and 10.69 lds of ground). Cattle futures near 
the top of the noon hour are mostly moderately lower on live contracts and 
sharply lower on feeder issues.

NOTE: Cargill has reported an explosion at a small standalone building that 
is part of the Dodge City, KS complex. Operations have been suspended as an 
extra precaution. Two employees are being treated for burns. Cargill says 
they expect to meet all of its supply commitments to beef buyers.
