Receipts:  630    Last Week:  402    Last Year:  415

   Compared to last Monday, breaking and boning slaughter cows sold 1.00-
2.00 higher while lean cows sold steady and slaughter bulls sold 2.00
higher. A high percent of the slaughter cows were in the breaking and boning
category. There was a moderate supply of bred cows with most in the second
stage, but a very light supply of cow/calf pairs. A few folks have started to
cut some hay but it is difficult to find a drying window long enough to get it
cured, with rain in the forecast again for Wednesday. Supply was moderate and
demand moderate to good for slaughter classes.
