Compared to last week:  steers 800 to 1000 lbs mostly steady, heifers

very good demand for today's offering which included a long string of
almost 2000 steers from one family outfit and a couple loads from 
other producers.   The majority of the offering came off grass and 
flesh and quality were very attractive.  An active market with a full
house of buyers present, often taking multiple loads when they could. 
Steers made up 93 percent of the offering, heifers 7 percent, 100 
percent over 600 lbs.  More feeder cattle expected next week, 
August 17.
