Receipts:  2148    Last Week:  1485    Year Ago:  2567

   Compared to last week, steer calves under 550 lbs and heifer calves steady,
steer calves over 550 lbs and yearlings steady to 2.00 higher, with the
exception of 700 weight heifers sharply higher with a couple load lots topping 
the trade.  Not enough Holsteins for a good market test with the exception of a
pot load of 900 weights selling 2.00 higher.  Demand moderate to good, supply
moderate.  Starting to see calves with long hair that had not shed off being
discounted due to the high humidity and the increased risk of health problems.
The feeder supply included 48 percent steers, 04 percent Holsteins, 40 percent
heifers, 07 percent bulls, with 55 percent over 600 lbs.
