    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.
