Springfield, MO- Livestock Marketing Center: Cow and Bull Auction 8/20/2012

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Receipts:  766    Last Week:  1098    Last Year:  381

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold 2.00-4.00 lower. Slaughter
bulls sold 3.00-4.00 lower on a light test. Most of the offering went to
slaughter. Producers are becoming more concerned as we approach fall with no
moisture to stimulate any forage growth to replace the hay and forage already
used which was intended for winter. Culling has become more intense as pro-
ducers consider innovative ways to retain their base herds. Some bred cows
returned to the farm but only a handful of cow/calf pairs were traded. Supply
was heavy and demand moderate for slaughter classes.
