   Compared to last week, a light test of feeders sold mixed; calves
mostly 4.00-7.00 lower and yearlings mostly steady to 5.00 lower. 
Future markets had a crazy day and started lower only to close with 
substantial gains after playing the game of how low can you go the 
last couple weeks. We will find out where this market is going from 
here as we approach the fall runs. Supply was light to moderate with 
moderate demand. The feeder offering consisted of near 48 percent
