   Compared to last week, based on a light test steers sold steady to 5.00

undertone was weak to lower. There was a large contrast in the condition of
the cattle offered ranging from fleshy un-weaned calves to long time weaned
yearlings coming off grass. Cattle futures rebounded on Tuesday after last
week’s sharp losses. Demand was mostly moderate, good for 600-750 lb steers.
Supply was light. The feeder offering was made up of near 59 percent steers
and bulls and 41 percent heifers with 58 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls
totaled 18 percent of the offering.
