DTN COMMENTS: Cash cattle trade is quiet early Monday
morning as feedlots determine their showlists and
asking prices for the week. Trade is expected to develop
early in the week, given that it is a shortened week for
Thanksgiving. Prices are anticipated to be firm based on the
advancements in boxed beef prices.
