   Compared to last Wednesday, the bulk of slaughter cows sold 2.00 higher
with instances 3.00 higher and slaughter bulls sold 1.00-2.00 higher. The
offering included a moderate supply of bred cows, with good demand for the
better quality bred cows, but only and a few scattered cow/calf pairs. Rain
fell over the area this last weekend providing plenty of water for the grass
to continue growing. Supply was moderate and demand good for slaughter
classes.
