Slaughter classes sold steady to weak . Replacement pairs and bred cows steady . Calves and feeder cattle mostly steady and the good thing was much more buyer activity and that continued to increase as the day wore on . The demand was much improved over last week. The heavy weight bull calves and yearlings are taking the biggest hit. There can be as much as 15 to 30 cents a pound difference in bulls and steers, making castration or banding a very profitable option.
. Fed cattle in the West lower last week @ 1.26 to 1.28
