Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 3/17/10

Thursday, March 18, 2010

Receipts:  963   Last Week:  1163   Last Year:  1020

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold 3.00-5.00 higher and
slaughter bulls sold 2.00-3.00 higher. Slaughter buyers reported a short
supply of slaughter cows available so we saw a sharp increase in slaughter
prices. With the stronger slaughter prices most older bred cows went to
slaughter and as a result most bred cows traded were 2-6 yrs of age.
Supply was moderate and demand very good for slaughter classes.
