The cooler weather this past weekend continued on Monday and it made for a nice day at the sale barn. Demand was moderate with a light supply. The feeder offering was made up of about 46 percent steers and bulls, 54 percent heifers, and 48 percent over 600 lbs. Cow and bulls 32 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows steady to 2.00 higher.
