Springfield, MO- Livestock Marketing Center: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 12/19/2011

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

Receipts:  495    Last Week:  720    Last Year:  577

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold steady to 1.00 lower and
slaughter bulls sold steady to 1.00 higher on a light supply. Most of the
offering went to slaughter and included a significant number of cull dairy
cows. Southern Plains packer interest continued to influence the slaughter
cow market. There was a moderate supply and good demand for bred cows. The
offering of cow/calf pairs was very light. Supply was moderate and demand
good for slaughter classes.
Note: There will be no cow and bull sale next Monday in observance of the
Christmas Holidays. The next regular cow sale will be Monday January 2, 2012.
