Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 7/13/11

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Receipts:  1182    Last Week:  661    Last Year:  924

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold 1.00-2.00 lower and
slaughter bulls sold 1.00 lower.  Slaughter cows remain plentiful and the
excess of available cows keeps the market moving lower.  The offering in-
cluded a heavy supply of bred cows and several cow/calf pairs from some
herd sell-outs.  Rain over the area last night and this morning brought
with it cooler temperatures and an opportunity for producers to move
cattle without the heat stress endured the past couple weeks.  Supply was
heavy and demand moderate for slaughter classes.
