yearling heifers selling steady to 3.00 higher on a good test of yearling
heifers.  Slaughter cows steady to 1.00 higher.  Much higher grain prices
since last week had a negative effect on feeder cattle prices.  Several
fleshy/unweaned calves were in the run.  Cows and bulls were 22 percent of
receipts.  In the feeder supply, steers and bulls were 39 percent of the
run; heifers 61 percent.  Near 57 percent of feeders weighed over 600 lbs.
