Springfield, MO- Livestock Marketing Center: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 12/12/2011

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Receipts:  720   Last Week:  609   Last Year:  479

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold 5.00-10.00 higher with the
greatest increase on lean cows and the bulk of slaughter bulls sold 2.00 higher.
Evidently the cows from drought areas have been cleaned up as Southern Plains
interest in slaughter cows here today offered considerable strength to slaughter
cow demand. There was a moderate to light supply of bred cows with good demand
for those traded and cow/calf pairs were nearly absent. Supply was moderate to
heavy and demand very good for slaughter classes.
