   Compared to last week, steer calves weighing 450-500 lbs sold 6.00-8.00 
higher, 500-600 lb steers traded 4.00-6.00 higher with 600-650 lb steers selling 
steady to 4.00 higher, yearling steers over 750 lbs sold with a sharply higher 
undertone with few comparisons from last week.  Feeder heifers weighing 450-600 
lbs sold 3.00-7.00 higher with a pot load of 687 lb yearling heifers selling 
5.00 higher, all other weights of heifers over 600 lbs sold with a higher 
undertone on light comparisons.  Demand was good with supply moderate.  Monday's 
auction consisted of many top quality calves and yearlings with active buying. 
Cattle futures had triple-digit gains in reaction to Friday's fed cattle cash 
market explosion mostly 6.00-8.00 higher gave good support to the feeder market.  
Slaughter cows accounted for near 8 percent of the total receipts.  Feeder 
cattle consisted of 65 percent steers, 35 percent heifers and 54 percent 
weighing over 600 lbs.
