We are finally getting some much needed rain across the midwest
giving everyone some optimism going into grazing season. Demand
was very good for the lighter fleshed cattle and moderate for the
fleshier cattle with a moderate to heavy supply. Several drafts of
heifers in particular were carrying some extra flesh as itís been a
long time since grass. Near 58 percent steers and bulls and 42 
percent heifers with 59 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls were
13 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows were steady to 2.00
lower.
