   Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers sold steady to 2.00 higher 
with the exception of heifer calves 2.00 to 4.00 higher. Slaughter cows traded 
steady on a relatively light supply. This week’s feeder offering was very 
attractive and included several uniform bunches for buyers to build around, but 
also included lots of fleshy, unweaned calves that were subject to larger 
discounts than the past couple of weeks. Supply moderate and demand moderate to 
good. Cows and bulls accounted for 11 percent of the total offering. The feeder 
supply consisted of 54 percent steers and bulls and 46 percent heifers; 35 
percent of all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 lbs.
