COMMENTS

Slaughter classes too few to trend.  Calves and feeder cattle 8 to 10 dollars lower. Market has backed off a little, but we are still enjoying a very good market and demand is strong. Some of this is probably due to weather, and the recent down slide of the futures and fed cattle market. We have always had adjustment periods in the market, and I think we are in good shape with a bright future. Numbers are on our side. Replacement bred cows and cow calf pairs 100.00 to 150.00 higher on good supply and we have more coming next week (see below).   Fed Cattle in the West  lower @ 159.00 to 162.00 .
