Springfield-Springfield Livestock Marketing Center: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 8/08/2011

Tuesday, August 9, 2011

Receipts:  314    Last Week:  271    Last Year:  449

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold 1.00-2.00 higher with in-
stances 3.00 higher and slaughter bulls sold 2.00-3.00 higher on a light
supply.  Slaughter buyers indicate the slaughter cow supply has started to
tighten up.  A couple small dispersals were included in the offering which
provided a light supply of quality bred cows and cow/calf pairs.  Much of the
area received some rain in the last twenty-four hours bringing relief from
the brutal temperatures of last week.  Supply was light and demand moderate
for slaughter classes.
