with a light test of steers under 700 lbs 5.00 to 8.00 higher. Slaughter cows 
2.00 to 3.00 lower. A fairly light run of feeder cattle this week, with a 
disproportionately large percentage of heifer cattle on offer, but a couple new 
faces in the crowd lent support to the higher market. Supply light to moderate 
and demand moderate. Cows and bulls accounted for 22 percent of the total 
offering. The feeder supply consisted of 33 percent steers and bulls and 67 
percent heifers; 59 percent of all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 lbs.
