consisted of 6 loads of good quality yearlings with just a few
calves. Combines are running hard as farmers try to get as much corn
harvested as they can before forecasted rain over the weekend. Demand
was good to very good for the loads with a moderate supply. The run
included near 96 percent steers and bulls, 4 percent heifers and 90
percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 14 percent of the 
offering. Slaughter cows sold with a sharply lower undertone when
compared to the last reported sale two weeks ago.
