   Compared to last week, feeder steers sold firm to 3.00 higher with most of 
the advance on steers over 550 lbs. Feeder heifers traded 2.00 to 4.00 higher 
with instances up to 10.00 higher on 500-600 lb heifers after a couple buyers 
came to town looking to own the same type and kind. Slaughter cows steady. All 
the regulars plus a couple extra volume buyers were in the seats, with some of 
the visitors making a sure impact and others mostly spectating, picking up a few 
head here and there. Lots of good quality cattle available this week with 
several more small strings of yearlings on hand. Calves were a mixed bag of 
those worked/weaned and those left nature made, and discounts were more evident 
on the extreme cases. Supply moderate to heavy and demand moderate to good. Cows 
and bulls accounted for 13 percent of the total offering. The feeder supply 
consisted of 50 percent steers and bulls and 50 percent heifers; 43 percent of 
all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 lbs.
