Market Notes

Compared to last week higher quality steer and heifer calves and yearlings steady, plainer, thin calves fully 1.00-4.00 lower. Slaughter cows followed the same trend. Fleshier, higher yielding cows weak, light, thinner cows were fully 2.00-4.00 lower. Slaughter bulls steady. Stock cows and pairs weak. Trading and demand moderate. Overall quality rather plain. Large numbers of thin cows and calves continue to come to market due to the continuing dry conditions.
