Slaughter classes steady to firm  . Replacement bred cows   100 dollars per head higher. No pairs available.  Calves and feeder cattle 3 to 6 higher straight across with some heifer calves 10 to 12 higher. certainly a turn for the better. The most activity and demand in the market than we have seen in a long time. I don`t want to say it too loud, but hopefully we have found a bottom in this market and are rebounding. Still a lot of difference in bull calves and lower quality cattle but the market overall looks much better!!

Fed cattle in the West higher last week @ 100- 102.
