Receipts:  1187    Week Ago:  782    Year Ago:  314

   Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers sold 1.00 to 3.00 lower. 
Slaughter cows weak to 2.00 lower. Overall quality this week was a little 
lackluster and the cattle on offer were sorted into very small packages and an 
overwhelming number of single-head lots. A huge run of cows for the second week 
in a row as producers continue to trim their herds a few head at a time. Supply 
moderate to heavy and demand moderate. Cows and bulls accounted for 27 percent 
of the total offering. The feeder supply consisted of 41 percent steers, 49 
percent heifers and 10 percent feeder bulls; 23 percent of all the feeders 
weighed over 600 lbs.
