Receipts:  3327    Two Weeks Ago:  3350    Year Ago:  0
 
   Compared to two weeks ago steers over 800 lbs sold 8.00 to 13.00 
lower and heifers over 700 lbs sold 5.00 to 9.00 lower. Demand was 
moderate to good. The sharp decline in this week price is related to 
the sharp losses that have occurred on the CME cattle boards since 
last Friday. Bulk of the sale consisted of yearling feeders with some 
fall calves in the run. Around 340 head of harvest cattle included in the 
receipts.  Wednesday supply comprised of 51 percent heifers, 48 percent 
steers with the balance on bull calves. Near 93 percent of the run 
weighed over 600 lbs. Next sale will be in two weeks on May 30.
