Compared to last week, slaughter cattle were steady with feeder cattle mostly 2.00 to 
8.00 lower.  Futures lower causing light demand and slow market activity.  Moderate 
offerings with quality of cattle plain to average.

Slaughter cows made up 19 percent of the offering, slaughter bulls 4 percent, 
replacement cows 5 percent, other cows 2 percent, and feeders 70 percent.  The feeder 
supply included 30 percent steers, 37 percent heifers, and 33 percent bulls. Near 16 
percent of the run weighed over 600 lbs.  (Figures in parentheses are weighted
