Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 3/30/11

Thursday, March 31, 2011

Receipts:  1103    Last Week:  1607    Last Year:  865

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold 3.00-4.00 higher and
slaughter bulls sold 2.00-3.00 higher. Following a substantial increase
last week slaughter prices continued the upward trend today. As slaughter
prices reach new highs, buyers of take home cows must dig deeper and in-
crease the amount they are willing to pay in order to be the successful
bidder. The offering included several dispersals that provided a good
selection of bred cows. Supply was moderate and demand very good for
slaughter classes.
