Receipts:  918    Week Ago:  1186    Year Ago:  628

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold steady to weak except for
a few consignments of thin yearling steers trading with a higher undertone.
Demand was moderate for calves as buyers are cautious with the weather and
mud, good for some yearlings. Supply was moderate. The feeder offering
consisted of 56 percent steers and bulls and 44 percent heifers with 40
percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 22 percent of the offering.
Slaughter cows sold 2.00-3.00 higher, however several cows went back to the
farm to feed or breed.
