Numbers were back this sale and the majority of the cattle were weaners. Around 100 PTIC cows were offered with 5 cow and calf units. The quality was fair to good with a few large drafts of weaners penned. The larger drafts were consistently better quality with some of the smaller lots plain and light in condition.
