Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 1/19/11

Thursday, January 20, 2011

Receipts:  1409   Last Week:  387   Last Year:  1309

   Compared last Wednesday, breaking and boning slaughter cows sold 4.00-
6.00 higher while lean cows sold 2.00-3.00 higher and slaughter bulls sold
4.00-5.00 higher. Several factors contributed to sharply higher slaughter
prices, including a need for more cows, higher meat prices and a winter
storm looming across the Midwest. There was a heavy supply of young bred
cows with someone more than ready to give each of them a new home. There
was only a scattered offering of cow/calf pairs. Supply was heavy and
demand very good for slaughter classes.
