The steer and heifer calves were selling $2 to $6 higher with the exception of light-weight, long-weaned, thinner fleshed calves, which were trading as much as $10 to $12 higher. The demand was moderate for calves off the cow or weaned less than 60 days and the remainder of the sale demand was very good. The quality was plain to average with a few attractive. The supply included 100% feeder cattle with 64% steers, 33% were heifers and 3% were bulls. The feeder cattle supply weighing over 600 pounds was 63%.
