Receipts: 5,825        Last Week 1,526        Last Year 7,183             

Results of:  Kist, Napoleon, Stockmen´┐Żs, and West Fargo

   Compared to last week:  Only 1 reported auction last week, no
price comparison available.  Demand good for all weights and classes
as the futures market stabilized and then made nearly limit higher
gains on Thursday.  Cattle feeders held out for higher money and
were able to sell fed cattle up to 122.00 in the northern plains.
The key months of Jun and Aug Live Cattle contracts are now 
back around 104.00, more than 7.00 higher from their lows that
were set a week prior.  This turn around was just what was needed
to give cattle feeders the confidence they needed to step in and 
buy feeder cattle.
