   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold steady to 1.00 higher and
slaughter bulls sold steady. Several herd dispersals were included in the
offering and provided a heavy supply of bred cows and several of very good
quality. The supply of cow/calf pairs was light. The arctic air has reached
the Ozarks and dwelled over the area today. Supply was moderate to heavy and
demand good for slaughter classes.
