Springfield-Springfield Livestock Marketing Center: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 3/1/10

Tuesday, March 2, 2010

Receipts:  838   Last Week: 405   Last Year:  304

   Compared last Monday, slaughter cows and slaughter bulls sold steady.
More favorable weather conditions this past week dried up some of the mud
and made it easier for producers to move cattle to market. A high percent
of the offering was slaughter cows and slaughter bulls. There was a
moderate supply of bred cows but a light supply of cow/calf pairs. The
supply was heavy and demand good for slaughter classes.
