Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Receipts:  723   Last Week:  0   Last Year:  1385

   Compared to three weeks ago, breaking and boning slaughter cows sold
3.00-4.00 higher and lean cows and slaughter bulls 1.00 higher. Packer
buyers bid aggressively to fill their orders on the first sale following
the Holidays and just ahead of the next winter storm moving into the area.
Higher slaughter prices and only a few take-home kind of buyers in attend-
ance found the majority of cows traded scheduled to take a ride on the
packers truck. Supply was moderate and demand very good for slaughter
classes.
