Receipts:  3059    Last Week:  5558    Year Ago:  5652
 
Compared to last week: Feeder steers and heifers were steady to 3.00 
lower. Quality, flesh condition and amount of tag on the cattle 
vary quite a little and reflect the prices received. Good demand for 
all classes of cattle, with several long strings of one-iron cattle in
todays offering. Flesh condition ranged from light fleshed hay feed 
cattle to moderate plus on the cattle being fed a higher energy 
ration. Market fairly active most of the time with many buyers trying
to buy cattle at their price. A few weather related 
cancallations shortened todays offering. 33 percent steers, 67 
percent heifers. 95 percent over 600 lbs. Next week, March 2nd 
expecting 4,500 to 5,000 feeders.
