   Compared to last week, a few packages of steers under 600 lbs traded with
a sharply higher undertone. Heifers sold mostly steady. After some cold
weather, buyers were more comfortable with the shorter weaned or un-weaned
calves if they fit the bill for quality and condition. With the increased
price paid for steers, the price difference between a steer and a heifer was
wide. Demand was good to very good for steers and moderate to good for
heifers. The supply of feeders was light for a pre-holiday sale, however a
heavy supply of slaughter cows was brought to town. The feeder offering was
made up of near 55 percent steers and bulls and 45 percent heifers with 39
percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 39 percent of the offering.
Slaughter cows sold steady, bulls sold 2.00-3.00 lower.
