Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 7/27/11

Thursday, July 28, 2011

Receipts:  1100   Last Week:  1199   Last Year:  638

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold 2.00-4.00 lower, and
slaughter bulls sold 3.00-4.00 lower. There are still more cows coming to
market than packers need and they report the demand for meat is down adding
more pressure to the slaughter market. Several dispersals were included in
the offering as producers become short of forage due to the extended dry
period. Supply was heavy and demand moderate for slaughter classes.
