***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. ***

lower on lambs under 60 lbs, while heavier lambs were steady to weak. Demand was 
very good at the beginning of the sale, but as buyers filled orders demand fell
