25 cents for the week, beef steers profit- j
ing the most. The run for the week i
was 41,000 head, several thousand great- j

spite of this there was not sufficient j
cattle to go around. Supply today is j
11,0(X) head, market steady to strong, in 1
the face of a big run and lower prices at j
Chicago. Packers were especially ac-

from butchers in local towns within a

keen last week that local killers failed j
to fill all their orders. No choice cattle ;
