Receipts:  629    Week Ago:  527    Year Ago:  446

   Very few comparisons available to last week but similar sales of steers and 
heifers traded weak to 5.00 lower. Slaughter cows steady to 2.00 higher. Bulk of 
the supply bred cows and cow/calf pairs. Most area farmers have parked the corn 
planter and are watching the calendar waiting to plant beans. Several locals 
reporting that corn should be popping up in rows by the weekend after a perfectly 
timed rain yesterday. Supply and demand moderate. Cows and bulls accounted for 65 
percent of the total offering. The feeder supply consisted of 51 percent steers and 
bulls and 49 percent heifers; 50 percent of all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 
lbs.
