Compared to two weeks ago, steers and heifers unevenly steady. Slaughter cows and bulls steady. Demand moderate for unweaned calves, good for long time weaned calves and yearlings, supply heavy. The local weather ideal for moving cattle to market and the recent cold temperatures has producers thinking about their feed supply and the approaching winter.  Near 07 percent of receipts were replacement cows, slaughter cows and bulls. The feeder supply included 54 percent steers, 39 percent heifers, 07 percent bulls, with 39 percent over 600 lbs.
