calves were fully preconditioned, off the cow, and in light to 
moderate flesh.  Quality more attractive last week with more plain to
average quality calves today.  A rough start to the futures this week,
wet and cold weather, the lingering harvest, and truck availability 
all affecting the market today and putting some pressure on it.  A 
moderate market for this offering with mostly order buyers in the 
seats.  Steers made up 60 percent of the feeders, 40 percent heifers,
31 percent over 600 lbs.  Next feeder cattle sale is next Thursday,
