   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold 1.00-2.00 higher and
slaughter bulls sold 2.00-3.00 higher. Slaughter cow and slaughter bull
prices continue to gradually gain strength as the numbers available to
packers decrease. The supply of bred cows was moderate but of good quality
and the supply of cow/calf pairs was very light. Supply was moderate and
demand good for slaughter classes.
