Springfield livestock auction report


The Springfield Livestock Marketing Center, Springfield, Mo., reported receipts of 2,535 head April 10, compared to 1,921 head last week and 1,518 head last year, according to the Missouri Department of Agriculture-USDA Market News Service, Springfield, Mo.

Compared to last week, steer and heifer calves were $5 to $10 lower, yearlings were $3 to $6 lower. There were not enough Holsteins under 600 pounds last week for a market comparison, but a higher undertone was noted. Holsteins over 600 pounds were steady to $5 lower. Demand was moderate, supply moderate to heavy. The Holstein trade was very active as local buyers were in the seats looking for grazing cattle. The percentage of fleshy, fall calves continued to increase. Live cattle and feeder cattle futures closed with triple digit losses. The feeder supply included 29% steers, 24% Holsteins, 32% heifers, 15% bulls, with 34% over 600 pounds.
