6.00 to 8.00 lower except under 600 lbs steady to 2.00 lower.  Good 
demand for this offering of feeder cattle, many long strings, full 
loads, and packages.  Flesh condition was mostly moderate plus as 
most of the offering was long time weaned on a backgrounding 
ration. The market was lower but still active.  A lower futures 
market along with a lower fat cattle trade pressured the feeder 
market.  54 percent steers, 46 percent heifers.  82 percent over 
600 lbs.  Next week, Jan 19 expecting 5,000 or more high quality 
feeders.
