Carthage-Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction 6/06/12

Thursday, June 7, 2012

Receipts:  995    Last Week:  1132   Last Year:  705

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold 3.00-6.00 lower with the
greatest decline on the fat breaking cows and slaughter bulls sold 3.00-4.00
lower. Slaughter cow prices are supply sensitive and with large numbers of
cows coming to market in the drought stricken areas prices are declining.
The supply of bred cows was light to moderate and there were only a few
scattered cow/calf pairs. Supply was moderate and demand light for slaughter
classes.
