mostly 3.00-10.00 lower, spots 11.00-14.00 lower. Yearlings had
a lower undertone. Monday’s future markets closing near limit down
across the board for both live and feeder cattle set the tone for
todays softer market. Demand has remained moderate to good however, 
particularly for the yearling cattle just at lower prices. Supply
moderate to heavy with near 51 percent steers, 43 percent heifers
and 6 percent feeder bulls with 36 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and
bulls totaled 13 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold
