Compared to last week, boning type slaughter cows were 5.00 to 6.00 higher, while slaughter bulls were 2.00 to 3.00 lower; there were too few breaking type slaughter cows to establish an adequate market comparison. Feeder cattle were mostly 9.00 to 12.00 lower. Demand was good at lower prices; market activity and buyer interest were active. Offerings of cattle were mostly moderate. Cattle quality was average. Baby calves (15 head) ranged 10.00 to 65.00 per head.
