COMMENTS

Slaughter classes 5 to 6 higher.  Calves and feeder cattle holding steady to very firm on a  very good market with lots of activity. Demand is very good and widespread. Replacement bred cows and cow calf pairs steady.Fed Cattle in the West  a little lower @ 160.00 to 162.00 . Numbers are definitely on our side. Despite some USDA predictions and some so-called experts who are telling us that our numbers are up, in talking to actual CATTLE PEOPLE around the country, we still hear numbers are declining. They tell us there are fewer heifers in the feed yards, but they don`t tell us there are also fewer steers.
