   Compared to two weeks ago, slaughter cows sold 3.00-5.00 lower and
slaughter bulls sold 4.00-6.00 lower. A very high percent of the offering
went to slaughter. The supply of bred and cow/calf pairs was limited in both
number and quality. Some producers in the area received rain over the past
week and a half and others are still in need of a good rain. Supply was
moderate and demand light for slaughter classes.
