Receipts:  1208   Last Week:  1038   Last Year:  1446

   Compared to last Wednesday, the bulk of slaughter cows sold 2.00-3.00
higher with a few high-dressing 4.00-5.00 higher and slaughter bulls sold
2.00-3.00 higher. An additional slaughter buyer on hand today strengthened
that market. The offering included a moderate supply of bred cows and a light
supply of cow/calf pairs. Supply was heavy and demand good for slaughter
classes.
