Cow and Bull Auction 1/08/14
Receipts: 530 Last Week: No sale Last Year: 635
Compared Wednesday three weeks ago, slaughter cows sold steady to 3.00
higher and slaughter bulls sold 3.00-4.00 higher. There was a moderate supply
of bred cows with very good demand, but only a light supply of cow/calf pairs.
Warmer temperatures made it more attractive for producers to bring cattle to
market even though most of the secondary roads are still snow and ice covered.
Supply was light to moderate and demand good for slaughter classes.
