Carthage-Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 1/11/12

Friday, January 13, 2012

Receipts:  1586    Last Week:  1705    Last Year:  387

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows and slaughter bulls sold 1.00-
3.00 lower with the greatest decline the first several hours of the auction.
Several dispersals provided some good quality bred cows and cow/calf pairs
with demand very good for take home cows. Producers continue to take advantage
of the favorable weather and dry conditions to bring larger than usual numbers
of cows to market but sharply colder temperatures are expected to invade the
area this evening. Supply was heavy and demand moderate for slaughter classes.
