Carthage-Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 12/14/11

Thursday, December 15, 2011

Receipts:  1686    Last Week:  1260    Last Year:  1781

   Compared to last Wednesday, breaking and boning slaughter cows sold 2.00-
3.00 higher and lean cows sold 4.00-5.00 higher while slaughter bulls sold
steady to 1.00 higher. It appears that slaughter cows in the drought areas
have been depleted as interest from Southern Plains packers was evident and
demand for slaughter cows increased. The supply of bred cows was heavy as
several producers sold cows due to short forage supplies and the supply of
cow/calf pairs was moderate. Supply was heavy and demand very good for
slaughter classes.
