Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Receipts:  328    Last Week:  483    Last Year:  537

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold 3.00-5.00 lower and slaughter
bulls sold 3.00-4.00 lower. The offering included a heavy supply of slaughter
bulls and several cull dairy cows. There was a very light supply of both bred
cows and cow/calf pairs. Most of the sale ring seats were unoccupied today as
producers are busy cutting hay, some trying to get it harvested before the
army worms do their harvesting. Supply was light and demand light to moderate
for slaughter classes.
