Demand was moderate to good with supply moderate to heavy, best demand was on steer calves weighing 400-700 lbs. Good offering of good quality steer calves and yearlings over 700 lbs. May corn jumped 14 1/2 cents with December corn up 18 1/2 cents as the sharp rise in crude oil helps to fuel the flame on corn values. Despite corn values buying interest on feeder cattle overall continues to hold up very well. Slaughter cows sold fully steady to firm.
