In the middle of the session, at Oklahoma National Stockyards, compared to last week, the feeding heifers and heifers were mostly constant with $ 2 lower. The decrease was due to higher weights. Storage cattle are $ 2 to $ 6 higher. The USDA says demand has been very good, especially for cattle in good condition to return to the grass. A few cattle with light to medium meat were also offered. The supply of the feeder included 54% oxen and 56% of the supply was over 600 pounds.
