Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 5/18/11

Thursday, May 19, 2011

Receipts:  1190   Last Week:  1089   Last Year:  1109

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows and slaughter bulls sold 2.00-
3.00 lower. A high percent of the offering went to slaughter. Slaughter
buyers indicate that two contrasting weather factors, the dry weather in the
southwest and floods along the Mississippi, are forcing additional cows onto
the market. Supply was heavy and demand moderate for slaughter classes.
