Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 5/19/10

Thursday, May 20, 2010

Receipts:  1109   Last Week:  1524   Last Year:  1410

   Compared to last Wednesday, the bulk of slaughter cows sold steady to
1.00 higher with some high-dressing 2.00 higher and slaughter bulls sold
1.00-2.00 higher. A high percent of the offering was slaughter cows and
slaughter bulls. The offering of bred cows and cow/calf pairs was light but
demand very good as reflected in the prices producers were willing to pay.
Muddy conditions following previous rains and additional rain falling
throughout the day likely reduced receipts. Supply was moderate and demand
good for slaughter classes.
