Springfield - Springfield Livestock Marketing Center: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 1/16/2012

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Receipts:  522   Last Week:  840   Last Year:  494

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold 1.00-3.00 lower at the opening
and steady to 2.00 lower at the close. Slaughter bulls sold 1.00-2.00 lower.
There was a light supply of mostly average quality bred cows and cow/calf pairs.
After an interlude of colder temperatures this last week it has warmed up again
and the ground remains dry so it continues to be ideal to move cattle. Supply
and demand were moderate for slaughter classes.
