Demand on calves similar to last week at moderate to good.  Flesh 
also similar, with varied flesh, from light to moderate plus.  A 
few weaned packaged available again this week, but the majority of 
the calves were off the cow and most had full preconditioning.  
Quality mostly attractive with the flesh on the calves making up 
the price difference.  A moderate market with mostly order buyers 
attending again today.  Steers made up 51 percent of the feeder 
cattle, 49 heifers percent, 53 percent over 600 lbs.  No feeder
