Joplin - Livestock Marketing Center: Cow and Bull Auction Close for 6/27/2012

Thursday, June 28, 2012

Receipts:  921    Last Week:  1233   Last Year:  885

   Compared to last week, slaughter cows sold 1.00-3.00 lower and slaughter
bulls sold 1.00-2.00 lower.  Most all cow/calf pairs were split and all of 
the bred 1st stage were sold per hundred weight, as the demand for take home 
cows has been greatly affected by the hot, dry weather.  Supply light and 
demand good for slaughter classes.
