Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 5/05/10

Thursday, May 6, 2010

Receipts:  1808    Last Week:  2000    Last Year:  820

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold steady with instances
1.00 lower and slaughter bulls sold fully steady. Slaughter buyers indicate
that Southwest Missouri is one the few areas where large numbers of cows
are coming to market and demand for slaughter cows remains strong. Large
supplies of cows the past several weeks would indicate the mark for cull
cows has been raised to a new level, directly correlated to price. Several
herd dispersals provided a good supply of cow/calf pairs and bred cows with
several of above average quality. Supply was heavy and demand good for
slaughter classes.
