Carthage-Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction 3/21/12

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Receipts:  1089    Last Week:  857    Last Year:  1607

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold steady to 3.00 lower with
the greatest decline on breaking and boning cows and especially the higher
dressing cows. Slaughter bulls sold 1.00-2.00 higher. A little green grass
has sure helped pull the fill off the slaughter cows and bulls. Several large
dispersals provided a heavy supply of bred cows and cow/calf pairs. Supply
was moderate and demand moderate to good for slaughter classes.
