Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Receipts:  328    Last Week:  460    Last Year:  483

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold unevenly steady and slaughter
bulls sold steady. A high percent of the offering went to slaughter and included
several cull dairy cows. The supply of bred cows and cow/calf pairs was light.
Rain this past week along with cooler temperatures has stimulated more rapid
growth of the cool season grasses. Supply was light and demand moderate for
slaughter classes.
