   Compared Monday two weeks ago, slaughter cows sold 1.00-2.00 higher and
slaughter bulls sold 1.00 higher on a heavy supply. The offering included
several large herd dispersals which provided a heavy supply of good quality
bred cows and cow/calf pairs. Most bred cows were in the 2nd stage. Rain
across the area this morning and word of the dispersals brought a large
crowd to the auction. Supply was moderate and demand good for slaughter
classes.
