Springfield-Springfield Livestock Marketing Center: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 3/21/2011

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Receipts:  715   Last Week:  544   Last Year:  314

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold steady to 1.00 higher and
slaughter bulls sold 2.00-3.00 higher. There were several herd dispersals
included in the offering which provided a heavy supply of cow/calf pairs
and a moderate supply of bred cows. Temperatures and moisture conditions
are right to make the pastures green-up and helps keep the demand high for
take home cows. Supply was heavy and demand moderate to good for slaughter
classes.
