Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Receipts:  398    Last Week:  782    Last Year:  768

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold 2.00-3.00 lower with some
high-dressing cows 4.00 lower and slaughter bulls sold 2.00-4.00 lower. Most
of the offering went to slaughter with several cull dairy cows included in
the mix. There was a light supply of bred cows with most traded in the 1st
and 2nd stage, and cow/calf pairs were scattered. Significant amounts of rain
fell across the area over the weekend helping to replenish soil moisture and
increase pond water supplies. Supply was moderate and demand light for
slaughter classes.
