higher. Heifers under 700 lbs sold 9.00-13.00 higher. Feeder cattle have gained
over 10.00 dollars on the board since last Tuesday resulting in the increase to
the local cash market. The recent rains have restricted the movement of cattle.

percent steers and bulls and 42 percent heifers with 54 percent over 600 lbs.
