Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 9/01/10

Thursday, September 2, 2010

Receipts:  1423   Last Week:  1222   Last Year:  665

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold 2.00-3.00 lower and
slaughter bulls sold 3.00 lower. Most of the area finally received some
rain today turning the dust to mud which should give a tremendous boost
to the opportunity for some fall forage production, but not soon enough
to prevent some producers from reducing their herds based on current
forage supplies. A high percent of today’s offering went to slaughter.
Supply was heavy and demand moderate for slaughter classes.
