Receipts:  658    Last Week:  3226    Year Ago:  No Sale

   Compared to last week:  Feeder steers and heifers steady to 3.00
higher.  Good demand for this lighter offering of high quality feeder
cattle.  Flesh condition light to moderate plus, cattle hides are rather
dirty as it has been very difficult to keep cattle clean.  Yard
conditions are sloppy and muddy but there were plenty of buyers on the
seats actively bidding wanting to get cattle bought and placed on feed.
Slaughter cows 1.00 to 2.00 higher, bulls not well tested.  71 percent
feeder cattle were over 600 lbs. 56 percent of feeders were steers; 44
percent heifers.  Feeder cattle made up 92 percent of the run,
balance slaughter cows and bulls.
