50 TO 75p CLOSING AT THE FULL DECLINE.* THE TRADE IN LOW-CUTTER COWS AND SAUSAGE
BULLS HAS HELD GENERALLY STEADY. ALTHOUGH FORT WORTH RECEI.PTS'ON MOST DAYS HAVE B-
OF MODERATE VOLUME, THE OFFERINGS INCLUDED TOO MANY SLAUGHTER .YEARLINGS FOR TRADE
REQUIREMENTS AND THE MARKET IN THIS CLASS HAS BEEN FURTHER DEPRESSEp ,BY EXTREMELY
:BEARISH A DVCES FROM THE NORTH. ONE LOAD OF. CHOICE LITTLE CATTLE MADE AN EXTREME
