Springfield, MO- Livestock Marketing Center: Cow and Bull Auction 9/10/2012

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Receipts:  866    Last Week:  No sale    Last Year:  781

   Compared to two weeks ago, breaking and boning slaughter cows sold 3.00-
4.00 higher while lean cows and slaughter bulls sold 2.00-3.00 higher. Most
of the offering went to slaughter. High feed costs have caused dairymen to
cull harder and dairy cows made up a major portion of the offering. The offer-
ing of bred cows and cow/calf pairs was light. Most of the area has received
enough moisture to give some of the fall seeded forages a start. Supply was
heavy and demand good for slaughter classes.
