firm, 500-600 lbs sold 2.00-4.00 lower and over 650 lbs were not well

very good offering of calves and yearlings for Monday's market with nine 
pot loads of good quality yearling steers weighing 800-900 lbs.  CME

receipts.  Feeder supply consisted of 62 percent steers and bulls, 38 
percent heifers and 61 percent weighing over 600 lbs.
