   Compared to last week, steer calves under 600 lbs traded 5.00-10.00 higher,
with too few comparable sales of heavier weights for a price trend. Heifers sold
mostly steady. A substantial rain over the weekend hampered receipts. Demand was
moderate with a light supply. Mostly unweaned calves carrying some flesh
selling in small groups offered. The feeder offering was made up of near 59
percent steers and bulls, 41 percent heifers with 32 percent over 600 lbs. Cows
and bulls totaled 29 percent of the offering.
