Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Receipts:  606   Last Week:  398   Last Year:  597

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold 3.00-6.00 lower with the
decline greatest as cows became more lean, and slaughter bulls sold 4.00-
7.00 lower. A very high percent of the offering went to slaughter with a
scattered supply of bred cows and only a handful of cow/calf pairs. Supply
was heavy and demand light for slaughter classes.
