Receipts:  6023    Last Week:  4420    Year Ago:  5667
 
Compared to last week:  steers 600 to 1000 lbs 3.00 to 6.00 higher 
execpt 800 to 899 lbs 7.00 to 10.00 higher.  Most weight classes of 
heifers lightly tested last week, best comparison on heifers 700 to 
750 lbs and 800 to 850 lbs 2.00 to 4.00 higher.  Good to very good 
demand for today's large offering of many packages, loads, and 
several strings of both homeraised and backgrounded cattle.  
Quality mostly attractive again today and flesh varied, but more 
flesh on the cattle than last week with quite a few in moderate 
plus flesh.  An active market with activity getting stronger 
throughout the sale.  Some tag on the cattle as the weather has 
gotten much warmer and pens are starting to thaw out.  The area still
has a large amount of snow and some producers are still digging out 
from last weeks blizzard.  Steers made up 54 percent of the feeder 
supply, heifers 46 percent, 93 percent over 600 lbs.  Next feeder 
cattle sale is next Wednesday, March 27.
