Slaughter cows holding steady . Replacement bred cows steady. Calves and feeder cattle much better selling 3 to 5 dollars higher across the board . Market certainly more active with much sharper demand. Almost afraid to say it , but some think the market found a bottom last week. I sure do hope so. The lower quality plainer cattle are still getting hammered, and this will probably continue. Quality is more important now than ever. Fed cattle in the West mostly steady on late week trade.
