Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 2/17/10

Thursday, February 18, 2010

Receipts:  1112   Last Week:  460   Last Year:  1100

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold 1.00-2.00 lower and
slaughter bulls sold 1.00 higher. Cold temperatures the last couple days
stiffened the mud enough that producers could gather cattle and bring
them to market. Several dispersals were included in the offering and
provided a larger supply of bred cows and a moderate supply of cow/calf
pairs. Supply was heavy and demand good for slaughter classes.
