Cow and Bull Auction 7/31/13
Receipts: 601 Last Week: 547 Last Year: 1399
Compared to last Wednesday, the bulk of slaughter cows sold 1.00 higher
with some high-dressing cows 2.00-3.00 higher and the bulk of slaughter bulls
sold steady with a few high-dressing bulls 1.00-2.00 higher. The offering
included a moderate supply of bred cows and cow calf pairs with most coming
from some larger dispersals. The grass is green, moisture is ample, and the
temperature fairly moderate for this time of year. Along with these more
favorable weather conditions has come a stronger demand for replacement cows
and cow/calf pairs. Supply was moderate and demand good for slaughter classes.
