the country, and the run today is
probably less than it might have been
had the weather remained good All
the markets have light runs, and the
market here is strong to 15 higher.

sold at 6.30, but there were several
lots at that price, and bulk of the
steers sold at 5.60 to 6.25. Prime
offerings would go up around 6.50.
