   Compared to last week:  Feeder steers and heifers sold 5.00 to 9.00 
lower.  Trade activity and demand were moderate.  CME futures struggled 
throughout the week and negotiated cash fat cattle traded lower causing 
feeder cattle prices and receipts to decline.  Slaughter cows and bulls 
made up 3 percent, less than 2 percent replacements, and 95 percent 
feeders.  Feeder supply consisted of 55 percent steers and bulls, 45 
percent heifers.  Near 76 percent of the run weighed over 600 lbs.
