Springfield - Springfield Livestock Marketing Center: Cow and Bull Auction 7/09/2012

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Receipts:  642    Last Week:  615    Last Year:  403

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold 2.00-3.00 lower and slaughter
bulls sold 1.00-2.00 lower on a light supply. A high percent of the offering
went to slaughter including a large number of bred cows and most cow/calf
pairs were split with the cows weighed up. Even though some scattered rain
fell in parts of the area over the weekend pastures are in poor to very
poor condition prompting a larger movement of cows to market. Supply was
moderate to heavy and demand moderate for slaughter classes.
