   Compared to a light test from last week, steers sold mostly 4.00
to 10.00 lower. Heifers sold with a steady undertone with only a few
comparable sales. A few buyers showed up looking to buy some upper
four weight steers and they sold with a higher undertone. Cattle
futures took a beating today and buyers are being cautious. Demand
was moderate to light. Supply was moderate. The feeder offering
consisted of near 56 percent steers and bulls and 44 percent
heifers with 61 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 21
percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold 2.00-4.00 lower.
