Receipts:  1333    Last Week:  969    Year Ago:  921 

   Compared to last week:  Trade activity and buyer demand moderate.  Feeder 
steers under 550 lbs were too lightly tested for an adequate market trend, and 
steers over 550 lbs traded mostly 1.00 to 3.00 higher with instances of 8.00 
higher.  Feeder heifers under 450 lbs were too lightly tested for an adequate 
market trend, and heifers over 450 lbs traded mostly 2.00 to 5.00 higher with 
instances of 7.00 higher.  Two large drafts of Wyoming raised heifers commanded 
buyer interest, topping the market.  The supply was comprised of 92 percent 
feeder cattle with the balance in bred cows, open cows and a few bulls.  In 
feeder cattle supply, approximately 32 percent were steers, 65 percent heifers, 
and 3 percent bulls with 56 percent of the supply weighing over 600 lbs.  The
