Tuesday, March 29, 2011

Receipts:  615    Last Week:  715    Last Year:  424

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold 2.00-3.00 higher with in-
stances 4.00 higher and slaughter bulls sold 4.00-5.00 higher. A couple
herd dispersals provided a heavy supply of cow/calf pairs and a moderate
supply of bred cows. High slaughter prices continue to draw large numbers
of cows to market. Supply was heavy and demand good for slaughter classes.
