According to an article in The Seattle Times, cull cow prices for dairy cows are still strong. The first livestock auction held in Yakima Valley since the BSE-infected cow was discovered in Washington state was held Monday and buyers showed up to buy.
Cull cow prices at the Yakima Valley livestock auction mostly averaged between 46 cents to 56 cents per pound. In December, before BSE was found in a single dairy cow that has now been traced back to Canada, prices ranged from 55 cents to 63 cents per pound.
