Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 3/03/10

Thursday, March 4, 2010

Receipts:  1137   Last Week:  887   Last Year:  830

   Compared to last Wednesday, the bulk slaughter cows sold 2.00-3.00
lower and slaughter bulls sold 1.00 lower. The major packers had enough
cows coming into the day to be current on their needs and with no push
to secure cows prices fell back. Several dispersals were included in the
offering providing several good bred replacements and cow/calf pairs.
Supply was heavy and demand moderate for slaughter classes.
