   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows and slaughter bulls sold 1.00-
2.00 lower. The overall quality of most slaughter cows was not as good as
last week with many being cull dairy cows that have been stressed by the
the extreme heat and were in thin condition. A couple small dispersals were
included in the offering and provided a moderate supply of bred cows and
cow/calf pairs. Supply and demand were moderate for slaughter classes.
