lbs 1.00 to 3.00 higher.  Heifers 550 to 600 lbs and 701 to 750 lbs 
mostly steady, 601 to 700 lbs 4.00 to 5.00 higher with instances 
10.00 higher on 600 to 650.  Good to very good demand for today's 
large offering which sold on an active market.  Many attractive 
quality steers and heifers to choose from in flesh from light to 
moderate plus with some heavy flesh at times.  The majority of 
today's offering was homeraised and there were many loads available. 
A couple packages of unweaned calves tagged as "calves" in the report.
Valued added cattle qualified for NHTC programs.  The mild winter 
weather the area had been enjoying has come to a end and the last 
week and a half has been below zero with nasty windchills.  Steers 
made up 60 percent of the feeder cattle supply, heifers 40 percent, 
92 percent over 600 lbs.  Next feeder cattle sale is next 
Wednesday, January 10.
