Carthage-Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction 5/30/12

Thursday, May 31, 2012

Receipts:  1132    Last Week:  1135   Last Year:  880

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold 1.00-2.00 lower and the
bulk of slaughter bulls sold 2.00-4.00 lower with some high-dressing bulls
6.00 lower. Slaughter buyers had smaller orders to fill today on a relatively
large supply which weakened slaughter prices. The offering included a heavy
supply of cow/calf pairs and a moderate supply of bred cows. Supply was
moderate to heavy and demand moderate at best for slaughter classes.
