Springfield, MO- Livestock Marketing Center: Cow and Bull Auction 5/7/2012

Thursday, May 10, 2012

Receipts:  468    Last Week:  370    Last Year:  495

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold 2.00-3.00 higher and slaughter
bulls sold 3.00 higher. The offering included a moderate supply of bred cows
and a light supply of calf pairs. Rain across the area during the early morning
hours stopped the haying process and gave producers time to bring some cows to
market. Supply was moderate and demand good for slaughter classes.
