Springfield, MO- Livestock Marketing Center: Cow and Bull Auction 8/12/2013

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Receipts:  337    Last Week:  340    Last Year:  1094

   Compared to last Monday, slaughter cows sold 1.00-2.00 higher with greatest
advance on the breaking and boning cows and slaughter bulls sold 1.00 higher.
A very high percent of the offering went to slaughter. There was a light supply
of bred cows and only a couple cow/calf pairs traded. Heavy rain fell again
today during the auction. Producers with summer annual grasses are anxiously
waiting for a window of several dry days to cut and bale those fields. Supply
was light and demand good for slaughter classes.
