   Compared to last week, a limited test of steer and heifer calves steady to
4.00 lower, yearlings steady.  Demand moderate, supply light.  Cold temperatures
and a spring storm has curtailed movement of stockers and feeder cattle.  A lack
of numbers kept some calf buyers out of the market.  The feeder supply included
54 percent steers, 39 percent heifers, 07 percent bulls, with 46 percent over
600 lbs.
