Springfield Livestock Marketing Center: Special Dairy Sale for 10/25/11

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Receipts:  930    Last Month:  1224    Year ago:  590

   Demand moderate to light, supply moderate to heavy with near 02 percent
Springer heifers, 16 percent bred heifers, 44 percent open heifers, 02 percent
Fresh heifers and cows, 04 percent Milking cows, 04 percent Springer and bred
cows and 11 percent baby calves.  Fluid milk prices are favorable, but input
costs continues to rise and tighten profit margins.  Due to the weaker
replacement trade, many of the Common grade cattle were weighed up to packer
and feeder buyers.  Holsteins unless noted otherwise.  Prices per head.
