lower undertone on a lighter test; weaned heavier calves and yearlings
mostly steady to 2.00 lower.  Excessive heat limited demand for
bawling calves, but demand for long weaned offerings was good.  Slaughter
cows firm.  Cows and bulls were 16 percent of receipts.  In the feeder
supply, steers and bulls were 50 percent of the run; heifers 50 percent.
