Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 9/7/11

Thursday, September 8, 2011

Receipts:  1138    Last Week:  870    Last Year:  886

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold 1.00-2.00 lower with in-
stances 3.00 lower, and slaughter bulls sold 1.00-2.00 lower. The lack of
moisture continues to force some producers to disperse their herds because
forage intended for use this winter is being consumed now with little hope of
replenishing supplies this fall. The supply of bred cows and cow/calf pairs
was moderate. Supply was heavy and demand moderate for slaughter classes.
