Thursday, May 8, 2014

Receipts:   1124   Last Week:  818   Last Year   791

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold steady to 1.00 higher
and slaughter bulls sold 1.00 higher. The offering included a moderate
supply of bred cows and a light supply of cow/calf pairs. The moisture
deficit is becoming more evident in the area as some cattle were sold
today because the producers ponds were going dry. Supply was moderate to
heavy and demand good for slaughter classes.
