Springfield, MO- Livestock Marketing Center: Cow and Bull Auction 7/23/2012

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Receipts:  840    Last Week:  785    Last Year:  426

   Compared to last Monday, the bulk of slaughter cows and slaughter bulls
sold 2.00-3.00 lower with instances late in the sale near steady. A high per-
cent of the offering went to slaughter including all but the better quality
young bred cows and most pairs were split with the cows going to slaughter.
Dry and hot weather continues and forage supplies become more scarce forcing
many producers to reduce their herd size. Supply was heavy and demand moderate
for slaughter classes.
