Springfield-Springfield Livestock Marketing Center: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 10/4/2010

Tuesday, October 5, 2010

Receipts:  533   Last Week:  597   Last Year:  496

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold steady and slaughter bulls
sold steady to 1.00 lower. Most of the offering was purchased for slaughter.
The supply of bred cows was very light with most in the second stage and
cow/calf pairs were also very light. Cooler temperatures have brought frost
to the area the last couple mornings and have set up ideal growing conditions
for the cool season grasses. Supply and demand were moderate for slaughter
classes.
