Receipts:  342    Last Week:  337    Last Year:  766

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows and slaughter bulls sold 1.00-
2.00 higher. There was a moderate supply of bred cows but only a few
scattered cow/calf pairs. Demand remains very good for bred cows. Except
for heavy morning dew the weather has become more favorable to make hay,
with lots of grass cut and several bales rolled up the past few days.
Supply was light and demand very good for slaughter classes.
