 Total Receipts:                  4,604                 3,389             2,469

 Compared to last week, steer calves traded 6.00-9.00 lower while heifer
 calves traded 5.00-7.00 lower.   Yearlings traded 2.00-4.00 lower in a light
 test of the market.  Demand was moderate on a heavy supply.   The demand for
 grass ready calves weakened this week amid concerns of the drought in the
 Texas-Oklahoma Panhandles as well as Central and Western Kansas.   In the
 Ozarks, the  grass is greening up but not growing fast enough to create much of
 a demand for local backgrounding.   Many producers are also concerned about
 their hay supply lasting until Spring, since most had to start feeding hay
 earlier than normal, due to our own drought conditions.  Feeder cattle supply
 included 54 percent Steers, 1 percent Dairy Steers, 41 percent Heifers, and  5
 percent Bulls. Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 43 percent.

 Please Note:
 The above USDA LPGMN price report is reflective of the majority of classes and
 grades of livestock offered for sale.  There may be instances where some sales
 do not fit within reporting guidelines and therefore will not be included in
 the report.  Prices are reported on an FOB basis, unless otherwise noted.
