   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows and slaughter bulls sold steady
to 2.00 higher. A high percent of the offering went to slaughter with many of
the cows falling into the breaking category. The supply of both bred cows and
cow/calf pairs was light and included a small dispersal. Temperatures near
seventy degrees today made for a balmy day, there’s hope for some moisture the
next couple days. Supply was light to moderate and demand moderate for
slaughter classes.
