Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Receipts:  347    Last Week:  343    Last Year:  835

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold 1.00-2.00 higher and
slaughter bulls sold steady to 1.00 higher. The offering included a
moderate supply of good quality bred cows and a light supply of cow/calf
pairs. This past weekend much of the area especially to the south and west
received measurable rainfall reversing the trend towards a repeat of last
year’s severe drought. Receipts from one year ago reflect the beginning of
producers culling their herds because of the severe dry weather. Supply was
light and demand good for slaughter classes.
