DTN COMMENTS: A typically quiet Monday morning with bids and 
asking prices not established as of yet, and significant trade 
volume will likely be delayed until the second half of the 
week. Beef cutouts are expected to be higher with generally 
light box movement.

For the week ending April 03, 2021, Imported Beef Passed for 
Entry in the U.S. totaled 38,841, 97.02% of the previous week 
and 98.93% of the 4-week average.
