***Report format change: Traditional markets refer to lambs that are 
subjected to USDA carcass grading, and marketed through mainstream 
outlets. Non-Traditional markets refer to lambs destined for slaughter 
outside of what would be termed as traditional markets. ***

steady with weakness noted in lambs weighing under 80 lbs. There was a 
large supply of heavy lambs weighing over 100 lbs on offer today. These
lambs sold with a firm undertone. Slaughter ewes sold steady to firm 
compared to a light test last week. Bucks sold steady to 10.00 lower on 
a light test. Demand was moderate. Supply consisted of 89 percent 
slaughter lambs, 10 percent slaughter ewes, and 1 percent slaughter bucks. 
All sheep and lambs are sold by the hundredweight, on actual weights.
