REVIEW COMMENT: SLAUGHTER STCERS HAVE BEEN- MORE PLENTIFUL THAN ANY
OTHER CLASS OF MARKET .CATTLE DURING THE WEEK. AND THE TRADE HAS BEEN GENERALLY DULL,
VERY UNEVEN AND MOSTLY WEAK TO LOWER. .THE PLAINER GRADES OF GRAS'SERS, ESPECIALLY
THOSE IN QUARANTINE -THAT FAILED TO GET THE BENEFIT OF SHIPPER COMPETITION, HAVE
BEEN HAMMERED FOR DECLINES OF AROUND 50 CENTS," ALTHOUGH OCCASIONAL SALES OF SHORT-
FEDS ON SHIPPER ACCOUNTT REMAIN STEADY. nR VERY NEARLY SO. MOST OF-.THE GRASSE-RS AND

HEAVY GRASSERSt AVERAGING 1,384 POUNDS, RANGED UP TO $7.00 EARLY IN THE WEEK.
QUALITY HAS BEEN GENERALLY LACKING IN THE STEER RECEIPTS. FAT YEARLINGS SHOW MODER-
ATE DECLINES SINCE A WEEK AGO, BUT PRICES FOR COWS AND BUTCHER CLASSES HAVE BEEN
FAIRLY WELL MAINTAINED. CHOICE FAT YEARLINGS RANGED UP TO A TOP OF $8.50 AND A FEW
GOOD TO CHOICE FAT COWS HAVE BEEN SELLING FROM $5.00 TO $5.75. BUTCHER GRADES ARE
STILL MOVING AROUND $3.25 TO $3.75 AND LOW-CUTTER SORTS ARE LISTED FROM $2.25 TO
$2.75. NOT MUCH BUSINESS HAS BEEN TRANSACTED IN STOCK CATTLE AND, DESPITE LIMITED
SUPPLIES OF THIS CLASS COUNTRY DEMAND HAS TURNED BEARISH AND STOCKER YEARLINGS
SHOW PRICE LOSSES OF 25 TO 50 CENTS FOR THE WEEK. FEATURES OF TRADE IN SLAUGHTER
CALVES INCLUDE A DOWNWARD TREND TO VALUES SINCE A WEEK AGO AND RATHER SHORT RECEIPTS
OF GENERALLY PLAIN QUALITY. A FEW GOOD HEAVY FAT CALVES HAVE BEEN SELLING UP TO
$7.00 AND ONE LOT OF CHOICE VEALERS, AVERAGING AROUND 200 POUNDS., MADE AN EXTREME
