Carthage-Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 11/09/11

Thursday, November 10, 2011

Receipts:  1446   Last Week:  1345   Last Year:  1488

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows and slaughter bulls sold 1.00-
2.00 lower. A high percent of the offering went to slaughter with many
producers culling their herds as they approach winter with less than ideal
inventories of forage. Enough rain fell the last several days that the term
“mud” was overheard at the barn today for the first time in long time. Supply
was heavy and demand moderate for slaughter classes.
