Carthage-Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 11/16/11

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Receipts:  1640    Last Week:  1446    Last Year:  1350

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows and slaughter bulls sold 2.00-
3.00 lower. With more cows available than needed to meet demand, slaughter
prices continue to decline. Several herd dispersals provided a heavy supply
of young bred cows and some quality cow/calf pairs. Several additional buyers
were on hand looking for take-home cows today. Temperatures have fallen since
noon and indicate winter may be just around the corner. Supply was heavy and
demand moderate for slaughter classes.
