Tuesday, March 16, 2010

Receipts:  668   Last Week: 710   Last Year:  639

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold 1.00-2.00 higher and
slaughter bulls sold 2.00 higher as buyers bid aggressively to fill their
orders. Strong slaughter prices continue to attract large numbers of cull
dairy cows. A couple dispersals helped to provide a moderate supply of bred
cows and cow/calf pairs with most of plain to average quality. The supply
was moderate and demand very good for slaughter classes.
