Cow and Bull Auction 12/07/16

Receipts:   1161   Last Week:   1056   Last Year:   816

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold 3.00-7.00 lower with
the greatest decline on boning and lean cows and slaughter bulls sold
3.00-5.00 lower. The offering included a heavy supply of bred cows and
a light supply of cow/calf pairs. Receipts have increased dramatically
as producers cull in preparation for cold weather and to pay end of year
taxes. Supply was heavy and demand light to moderate for slaughter classes.
