No recent comparison available for this special weaned/vaccinated sale
as last special sale was a month ago.  Offerings were all long timed
weaned and preconditioned.  Quality was very attractive and the market
was active.  Good to very good demand for all classes with the best
demand, by far, was for those light fleshed cattle suitable for grazing
programs.  Many long strings offered, with several full loads, along with
numerous smaller consignments that buyers could put together and make 
full loads of.  Flesh condition was uneven as it ranged from light to 
moderate plus.  Feeder supply 57 percent steers and 43 percent heifers,
with 80 percent 600 lbs and over.
