Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 6/16/10

Thursday, June 17, 2010

Receipts:  883    Last Week:  1204    Last Year:  640

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold 2.00 lower with in-
stances 3.00 lower and slaughter bulls sold 1.00-2.00 lower. Slaughter
buyers indicate there are plenty of cows available across the country to
meet their needs and that demand has softened causing prices to back-up.
There was a moderate offering of mostly young bred cows and cow/calf
pairs. Supply and demand were moderate for slaughter classes.
