Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 8/25/10

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Receipts:  1222   Last Week:  1182   Last Year:  1322

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows and slaughter bulls sold
2.00-3.00 lower. Temperatures are much cooler across the four-state area
this week and with pastures drying up slaughter buyers are expecting
more cattle to move to market in the next several weeks. Several herd
reductions and small dispersals were included in the offering and helped
to provide a larger supply of bred cows and cow/calf pairs. Supply was
heavy and demand moderate for slaughter classes.
