   Compared to last week, feeder cattle traded steady on a limited test.  
Slaughter cows steady to 2.00 lower. The feeder cattle auction featured a little 
something for everyone, typical for this time of year, with a wide variety of 
kind, quality and condition.  Missouri Valley Commission Company held a special 
cow sale in conjunction with their regular weekly feeder cattle auction and the 
bulk of this week’s receipts were cow/calf pairs, with most of those coming from 
a local herd dispersal. Supply moderate. Cows and bulls accounted for 73 percent 
of the total offering. The feeder supply consisted of 30 percent steers, 36 
percent feeder bulls, and 34 percent heifers; 32 percent of all the feeder 
cattle weighed over 600 lbs.
