cows steady to 1.00 lower. A little something available for every kind of buyer 
this week, from fly weight calves to heavy yearlings with quality running the 
gamut as well. Cattle in a quick come on condition are still in hot demand and 
discounts were more evident this week on the fleshier offerings. Supply moderate 
to heavy and demand moderate, but particularly good for the handful of 
consignments of cattle weighing over 700 lbs. Cows and bulls accounted for 08 
percent of the total offering. The feeder supply consisted of 59 percent steers 
and bulls and 41 percent heifers; 54 percent of all the feeders weighed over 600 
lbs.
