   Compared to last week, steer calves and yearlings (on a light test) 2.00 to
4.00 lower, heifer calves steady to 3.00 lower, Holsteins under 650 lbs 6.00 to
10.00 lower, over 650 to 850 lbs 2.00 to 4.00 lower, a load lot near 1000 lbs
steady.  Demand unevenly moderate and supply moderate.  Live Cattle and Feeder
Cattle futures closed limit down yesterday after it was reported that a cow with
BSE was found in California.  But cattle futures rebounded today with contracts
closing on the positive side.  A few cattle buyers and producers decided to take
a wait-and-see approach and stayed out of the market.  The feeder supply 
included 29 percent steers, 22 percent Holsteins, 33 percent heifers, 16 percent
bulls, with 40 percent over 600 lbs.
