Springfield - Springfield Livestock Marketing Center: Special Dairy Sale for 7/24/12

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Receipts:  774    Last Month:  687    Year Ago:  456

   Demand moderate to light, supply moderate with near 12 percent bred and
Springer heifers, 34 percent open heifers, 01 percent Fresh heifers and cows,
16 percent Milking cows, 08 percent Springer and bred cows and 06 percent baby
calves.  Several dispersals in the offering, but very little buying interest
from local dairymen for replacements.  Stock water is becoming critical for some
producers, feed costs continue to climb higher, and the hot weather is hard on
milk production.  The bulk of the milking and bred cows were sold to packer
buyers.  Holsteins unless noted otherwise.  Prices per head.
