Receipts:  536    Week Ago:  1211    Year Ago:  426
 
   Compared to last week, a lighter test of steers and heifers traded steady
to 3.00 higher, except 500-550 lb steers and 450-500 lb heifers 6.00-8.00
higher. The local calf market is mostly back to the prices seen before the
bearish cattle on feed report and buyers were confident in purchasing cattle.
Demand was moderate to good with a moderate supply of mostly smaller groups
of quality cattle. The feeder offering was made up of near 72 percent steers
and bulls, 28 percent heifers and 46 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls
totaled 14 percent of the offering. A light test of slaughter cows and bulls
sold steady to 2.00 lower.
