950 lbs mostly steady, other weight classes of steers not well 
compared.  Heifers 650 to 700 lbs, 750 to 950 lbs 4.00 to 6.00 
lower except 850 to 900 lbs steady, instances 8.00 lower on 650 to 
700 lbs.  Good demand for today's offering with very good demand 
for loads and packages of replacement quality heifers.  Unlike last 
week's strings and loads, this week's offering was many packages 
and loads.  Replacement heifer loads were sometimes gate cut to 
accomodate smaller orders.  Less flesh on today's offering with 
most in moderate to moderate plus, a few packages in light flesh.  
Average to attractive quality.  Not nearly as many of the heavy 
finishing type cattle as last week with more fall calves and 
lighter weight yearlings.  Value added cattle qualified for NHTC or 
drug free programs or both.  An active market with good buyer

field work.  Steers made up 41 percent of the feeder supply, 
heifers 59 percent, 95 percent over 600 lbs.  Next feeder cattle sale
