Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 2/03/10

Thursday, February 4, 2010

Receipts:  512   Last Week:  893   Last Year:  1000

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold 2.00-3.00 higher and
slaughter bulls sold 2.00 higher. Slaughter prices reacted to a light
supply even though slaughter buyers reported this morning that money had
been taken off meat over night. A couple herd dispersals were included
in the offering, however the supply of bred cows and cow/calf pairs re-
mained light but of good quality. Supply was light and demand very good
for slaughter classes.
