Slaughter classes steady  . Replacement pairs and  bred cows steady . Calves and feeder cattle 3 to 5 lower . Market participation and activity backed off some from last week due to pressure from the big markets as well as all the economic uncertainty in this country and around the world. The overall quality was a little lower yesterday as well. I really believe we are on solid ground but we are going to have to pay more attention to quality and management of our calf crop, because it is a crop. The two things that I hear most are the importance of castrating bull calves and being on a vaccination program. These things seem to be more important to some feeders than weaning, although weaning is a plus.

.Fed cattle in the West  last week 2 lower @ 1.34-1.36 last week.
