Tuesday, March 27, 2012

Receipts:  418    Last Week:  392    Last Year:  614

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows and slaughter bulls sold fully
steady to 1.00 higher. The offering included a light supply of bred cows and
a moderate supply of cow/calf pairs with the majority of both coming from
a herd dispersal. Temperatures around the 80 degree mark and several inches
of rain last week have got the grass going. Saw some cereal rye yesterday that
had already headed. Supply was light and demand good for slaughter classes.
