Compared to the previous week, the steer and heifer calves and yearlings were steady to $3 higher. The demand was moderate to good and the supply was moderate. The slaughter steers and heifers were trading higher this past week, but feeder cattle futures closed lower and grains trading sharply higher adding pressure to the feeder cattle trade. The supply included 100% feeder cattle with 44% steers, 47% were heifers and 8% were bulls. The feeder cattle supply weighing over 600 pounds was 59%.
