`	
   Compared to last week, based on few comparable sales steers and heifers
traded steady to 5.00 higher with spots up to 10.00 higher on some of the
thinner fleshed cattle and 700-750 lb steers. Bigger strings of yearling cattle
were offered this week which allowed buyers to put loads together and they paid
no attention to the board as demand was very good despite all of Mondays gains
being lost on Tuesday. Supply was moderate. The feeder offering was made up of
near 55 percent steers and bulls and 37 percent heifers with 45 percent over 600
lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 13 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows and bulls
sold mostly steady.
