morning with packers focusing on the collection of new
showlists. Significant trade volume will likely be delayed
until the second half of the week. Beef cutouts are expected to
be mixed with light box movement.

Entry in the U.S. totaled 40,184, 96.26% of the previous week
and 95.37% of the prior 4-week average.
