COMMENTS

Slaughter cows steady to 2 lower  and bulls were 2 to 4 lower.  Replacement bred cows  and  cow calf pairs  steady  .    Calves and feeder cattle mostly 2 to 5 dollars higher. Very good activity and strong demand on the part of all our buyers. Fed cattle in the West  lower again last week  @ 134- 135.  Fed cattle supplies are current and beef demand is very good. The Chinese Market opening up will help some although a lot of beef has been going to China through Hong Kong and Vietnam. The difference is this will open our market to the growing Chinese middle class that have money and want our Superb Beef!!
