Four-weight feeder steers were sharply higher, there were too few comparable five- and six-weights available to establish an adequate market comparison; feeder heifers were unevenly steady; and feeder bulls were mostly 5.00 to 6.00 lower. Demand was mostly moderate, good for fancy and value added cattle; market activity and buyer interest were fairly active. Offerings of cattle were moderate. Cattle quality was average with some attractive.
