Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 12/01/10

Thursday, December 2, 2010

Receipts:  1184   Last Week:  610   Last Year:  1390

   Compared to last Wednesday, breaking and boning slaughter cows sold
2.00-3.00 higher and lean cows sold 1.00 higher while slaughter bulls
sold 2.00 higher. Bidding was active for slaughter classes. As we move
into December packer buyers are buying to build an inventory of slaughter
cows since many sale barns will be closed one to two weeks for the Christ-
mas Holidays. Several additional buyers were on hand looking for take home
cows. Cow/calf pairs were almost non-existent. Supply was heavy and demand
very good for slaughter classes.
