Receipts: 941 Week Ago: 1014 Year Ago: 519

Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold mostly steady. Demand was good for steers and moderate to light for heifers. The yearling market is finding very strong support from the sharply higher fed cattle trade that has occurred over the last two weeks. Along with that, demand was good for 300-450 lb male calves to send to wheat pasture to graze as well. Supply was moderate to heavy. The feeder offering was made up of near 64 percent steers and bulls, 36 percent heifers with 41 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 17 percent of the

offering. Slaughter cows traded steady to 2.00 lower and slaughter bulls sold steady.
