   Compared to last week, steer and heifer calves steady to 2.00 higher,
yearlings steady.  Demand good, supply moderate.  Calf trade gained strength
during the day, but as Cattle futures turned lower and loads were squared-up,
trade moderated.  December and February Live Cattle futures closed limit down
and all other Live Cattle and Feeder Cattle futures suffered triple digit losses Grain futures were lower as well.  A cold front moved through the four state
trade area reminding us that winter is fast approaching.  The feeder supply
included 51 percent steers, 43 percent heifers, 06 percent bulls, with 42
percent over 600 lbs.
