Receipts:  747    Last Week:  No Sale    Last Year:  840

   Compared to three weeks ago, the bulk of slaughter cows sold 1.00-2.00
higher with some high dressing cows 3.00 higher and slaughter bulls sold 2.00
higher. Most of the offering went to slaughter and included a very high
percent of cull dairy cows. The offering of bred cows was light and cow/calf
pairs were scarce. The area continues to be short on moisture with some hope
of precipitation later this week. Supply was heavy following an extended
Holiday break and demand was moderate to good for slaughter classes.
