Springfield - Livestock Marketing Center: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 8/13/2012

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Receipts:  1098    Last Week:  746    Last Year:  438

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold firm and slaughter bulls
sold 1.00-2.00 higher. A very high percent of the offering went to slaughter 
which also included about 35 percent dairy cows and bulls. Several herds were 
dispersed as the rain has left us high and dry, although cooler temperatures are 
much welcomed in the area.  Supply was heavy and demand was good for slaughter 
classes.
