Good run on holstein strs traded strong with good mid weights bringing $162-176. Yearlings also traded off $3-8 as with volumes of yearlings getting light it makes it difficult for buyers to put loads together. As large volumes of calves come to market buyers become more selective and as a result 2nd cut calves get discounted even more heavily.
