offering featuring many loads and packages.  Flesh similar to last 
week with most calves in light to moderate flesh.  A few more 
weaned packages today but the majority of the calves were off the 
cow.  Several packages of calves today without full

spring but lacked fall shots.  Quality today more attractive than 
last week.  An active market with order buyers and a couple of farmer
feeders attending the sale.  Steers made up 62 percent of the feeder 
supply, heifers 38 percent, 57 percent over 600 lbs.  Next feeder 
cattle sale is next Thursday, December 13.  This will be the last
