400-500 lbs were not tested but traded with a higher undertone, feeder 
steers weighing 550-850 lbs sold fully steady to firm.  Feeder heifers 
weighing 400-500 lbs on a light test sold 5.00-7.00 higher with 500-700 
lbs selling steady on comparable sales.  Slaughter cows sold fully steady 
to firm.  Demand was good with supply moderate.  Despite lower feeder 
cattle futures and a nose-dive in the equity markets this week did not 
pressure feeder cattle prices. Slaughter cows accounted for near 15

steers and bulls, 40 percent heifers and 63 percent weighing over 600 
lbs.
