Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Receipts:  403    Last Week:  350    Last Year:  421

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold 2.00-5.00 lower and slaughter
bulls sold 2.00-3.00 lower. The offering included a herd dispersal providing
some good quality bred cows and cow/calf pairs. Temperatures in the triple
digits this past week and forecast to continue this coming week is taking a
toll on pastures as well as livestock and producers. Supply and demand were
moderate for slaughter classes.
