   Demand good, supply moderate with near 23 percent bred and Springer heifers,
19 percent open heifers, 06 percent Fresh heifers and cows, 13 milking cows, 25
percent bred and Springer cows and 05 percent baby calves.  Three complete
dispersals were in the offering providing a good selection of replacement
Holstein milking cows.  The herds were from family operations that has been in
the dairy business for several generations.  They represented years and years of
AI breeding or used herd bulls from a reputation dairy in southwest Missouri.
The fall rains have changed the landscape from brown, burn-up pastures into
meadows of green, lush grass.  Hay balers that have been parked all summer are
now busy baling fall hay.  Holsteins unless noted otherwise.  Prices per head.
