Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 4/27/11

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Receipts:  780    Last Week:  1275    Last Year:  1982

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold fully steady with in-
stances 1.00 higher and slaughter bulls sold steady to 1.00 lower. Wet and
muddy conditions hampered the movement of cattle out of the country today
reducing receipts. Even with the reduced receipts slaughter buyers indicated
they had ample cows on hand to meet their needs. Supply was light to moderate 
and demand moderate for slaughter classes.
