Springfield, MO- Livestock Marketing Center: Cow and Bull Auction 6/11/2012

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Receipts:  536    Last Week:  560    Last Year:  440

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold 4.00-6.00 lower and slaughter
bulls sold 3.00-4.00 lower. Most of the offering went to slaughter. Because of
dry weather in a number of areas more slaughter cows are available than packers
need, therefore the prices continue to decline. The offering of bred cows and
cow/calf pairs was light. Some welcome rain fell over much of the area this
morning. Supply was moderate and demand light for slaughter classes.
