Carthage- Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 6/15/11

Thursday, June 16, 2011

Receipts:  1100    Last Week:  705    Last Year:  883

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold 2.00-4.00 lower with in-
stances 5.00 lower and slaughter bulls sold 2.00-4.00 lower. A high percent
of the offering went to slaughter. Packer buyers report that the large number
of cows coming to market from the drought stricken Southwestern U.S. has
driven slaughter prices down. The offering of cow/calf pairs was very light.
Supply was moderate and demand moderate for slaughter classes.
