The decline of the model of large livestock markets. A paradigmatic case: The Torrelavega Market (2002/2014)

In the framework of a clear decline in the business of the great Spanish Livestock Markets and in most types of cattle trade in Torrelavega Market, in particular Friesian and cross calves males and females rearing of one to three weeks and heifers and dairy cows in first, second and third birth we have tried to examine the evolution and trends of entries, transactions, and destinations, number and estimated value and most frequent prices from the weekly and annual information available, even comparing the later with national ones. Market activity continues to decline in concurrency, transactions and amount of business, significantly oriented towards the predominance of rearing and fattening calves.
