   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold steady to 1.00 higher and
slaughter bulls sold 1.00 higher. A high percent of the offering went to
slaughter. There was a light supply of bred cows with most in the second
stage and only a few scattered cow/calf pairs. Grass has started to grow,
but cooler temperatures make the progress slow. Supply was moderate and
demand good for slaughter classes.
