Carthage-Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction 2/29/12

Thursday, March 1, 2012

Receipts:  1052    Last Week:  1003    Last Year:  884

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold steady to 1.00 higher with
a few instances 2.00 higher and slaughter bulls sold 1.00-3.00 lower with the
greatest decline on high-dressing bulls. Several dispersals provided some top
quality bred cows and cow/calf pairs, and there is an ever increasing demand for
those good quality take-home cows. Supply was moderate and demand very good for
slaughter classes.
