Springfield-Springfield Livestock Marketing Center: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 3/22/10

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Receipts:  317   Last Week: 668   Last Year:  696

   Compared to last Monday, the bulk of slaughter cows sold 1.00-2.00
higher with a few instances 3.00 higher and slaughter bulls sold 2.00-3.00
higher. The offering included a high percent of cull dairy cows. The supply
of bred cows and cow/calf pairs was very light with most pairs traded being
short and solid mouth to aged cows. A late winter or early spring storm
which hit most of the area Saturday into Sunday morning, with the heaviest
amounts of ice and snow to the west of Springfield, greatly limited receipts
as well as the depth of quality of cattle traded today. The supply was light
and demand very good for slaughter classes.
