DTN COMMENTS: Packer inquiry is limited this morning, and significant trade
volume is likely to be delayed until Wednesday or later. Some early asking
prices are starting out around $120 plus in the South, and $190 plus in the
North. A JBS beef production plant in Pennsylvania will be reducing
production due to COVID-19 worries. The plant will continue to run
"fabrication and ground beef operations" and hopes to be back to normal
production by April 14th. Beef cutouts are expected to be lower, with light
to moderate box movement.
