   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows and slaughter bulls sold steady
to 1.00 higher, holding on to the weather market gains from a week ago. The
offering included a moderate supply of bred cows and a light supply of cow/
calf pairs. Temperatures have moderated and roadways are back to normal allow-
ing producers an opportunity to move cattle to market as reflected in the
receipts. Supply was heavy and demand good for slaughter classes.
