Norwood - Producers Auction Yards: Special Dairy Heifer Sale for 9/8/11

Friday, September 9, 2011

Receipts:  1215    Last Special:  1099    Year Ago:  1428

   Demand moderate with near 12 percent Springer heifers, 11 percent bred
heifers, 40 percent open heifers, 02 percent Fresh heifers and cows, 03
percent Springer cows and 11 percent baby calves.  Supply moderate.  Grain
and hay costs continue to rise, adding pressure to the Dairy replacements,
especially noticeable on open Crossbred heifers and lower quality heifers.
Locally, some producers are already feeding hay due to the short pastures
and semi truck loads of hay are being shipped daily to the drought areas of
Texas.  Holsteins unless noted otherwise.  All prices per head.
