   Compared to last week’s short supply, similar sales of feeder cattle traded 
from 4.00 to 6.00 higher with instances of up to 10.00 higher on 500-600 lb 
steers. Slaughter cows steady to 1.00 higher. Quality and demand were both much 
improved over the last sale with the majority of the cattle on offer weaned and 
worked. Several consignments of heavy weight yearlings were readily absorbed but 
5 weight steers were the hottest item at the barn this week, particularly early 
in the day. Supply and demand moderate. Cows and bulls accounted for 17 percent 
of the total offering. The feeder supply consisted of 55 percent steers and 
bulls and 45 percent heifers; 49 percent of all the feeder cattle weighed over 
600 lbs.
