to $10 higher than the previous week. Northern dressed deals

DTN MORNING COMMENTS: The country is quiet this morning with
bids and asking prices not established. Significant trade
volume will likely be delayed until the second half of the
week. Beef cutouts are expected to be lower with generally
light box movement.
For the week ending March 21, 2020, Imported Beef Passed for
Entry in the U.S. totaled 38,038, 104.18% of the previous week
and 107.13% of the 4-week average.
