Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 1/12/11

Thursday, January 13, 2011

Receipts:  387   Last Week:  1436   Last Year:  1232

   Compared last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold steady to 1.00 higher and
slaughter bulls sold 2.00 lower. The majority of the offering went to
slaughter with only a light supply of bred cows and cow/calf pairs on hand.
Temperatures near zero this morning and snow covered secondary roads reduced
receipts here today. Despite the inclement weather demand remained high for
bred cows. Supply was light and demand good for slaughter classes.
