Receipts:  1200    Week Ago:  3715    Year Ago:  609

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold mostly steady except
550-650 lb steers 5.00-10.00 higher. A mix of both un-weaned calves and thin
long time weaned yearlings was offered. Demand was moderate for the un-weaned
calves and good for the yearlings. Heifers in the same weight ranges sold with 
large spreads in some instances depending upon condition. Supply was light to
moderate. Some rain fell in the area over the weekend bringing some much needed
moisture. The feeder offering was made up of near 56 percent steers and bulls
and 44 percent heifers with 63 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 12
percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold 3.00-5.00 lower and slaughter bulls
sold steady.
