Receipts:  3715    Week Ago:  0    Year Ago:  1721

   Compared to the last reported sale two weeks ago, a few packages of steer
calves under 450 lbs sold with a sharply higher undertone while all other
weights of steers traded 2.00-5.00 higher except 650-700 lbs 9.00 higher.
Heifers sold steady to 5.00 higher. An excellent quality run of mostly yearling
cattle was offered which included many load lots. Trade was active with very
good demand as a period of stability in the market and several days of futures
gaining steam has given buyers confidence to push prices. Supply was heavy.
The feeder offering was made up of near 57 percent steers and bulls and 43
percent heifers with 76 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 5 percent
of the offering. Slaughter cows and bulls sold 2.00-4.00 lower.
