Springfield Livestock Marketing Center Feeder Cattle - Springfield, MO
- Springfield Livestock Marketing Center
- Jefferson City, MO
This is a weekly auction held each Wednesday at the Springfield Livestock Marketing Center in Springfield, Missouri. This auction contains feeder steers, heifers, and bulls. This weighted average report includes only feeder cattle; however, the auction report, if applicable, would include all of the livestock sold at the sale. All livestock that are included on these reports are graded and reported according to official USDA live animal standards and guidelines. These reports are organized according to USDA’s format guidelines and instructions, under the Voluntary Price Reporting authority of USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service. This report is released the Thursday following the sale.
This report is generally released each week; however, throughout the summer receipts may become very light. If this happens, the Market Report and Supervisor will determine whether or not the auction will be covered.
Market information and data is collected throughout the course of the live auction, as the reporter will grade the cattle and record the pertinent information in the reporting tool. Information that the reporter must record for each lot includes the official USDA grade, weight, head count, and selling price. To ensure the accuracy of these reports, each Market Reporter is required to take a written test and apply their skills during an official live animal grading correlation with their supervisor every two years.
