lbs were mostly steady to 3.00 lower, steers 600-750 lbs traded 5.00 to 6.00 
lower and steers over 750 lbs were steady to 4.00 higher.  Feeder heifers under 
600 lbs traded 3.00 to 7.00 higher on good buyer demand, 600-700 lb heifers were 
steady to 3.00 lower and heifers over 700 lbs traded unevenly steady.  The run
