Thursday, January 3, 2013

Receipts:  635    Last Week:  No sale   Last Year:  1705

   Compared to two weeks ago, slaughter cows sold steady with a few in-
stances 1.00 higher and slaughter bulls sold steady. The offering included
a light supply of bred cows and a very light supply of cow/calf pairs. Most
of the area received a small amount of moisture over the Holiday’s in the form
snow and light rain. Feels like winter today with high temperatures in the mid
thirty’s. Supply was light and demand good for slaughter classes.
