Another useful September entry generally mirrored last week’s trade with the differential in price between the best and the rest
becoming more noticeable. Any smart shaped animals with condition still commanding the premium price levels while those
animals not having the benefit of a supplemental feed more difficult to place. A pair of cracking 28 month Blonde and Angus steers
