Carthage-Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction 8/01/12

Thursday, August 2, 2012

Receipts:  1399    Last Week:  1234    Last Year:  750

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold 1.00-2.00 higher and
slaughter bulls sold 2.00-3.00 higher. Dry and hot weather continues across
the area and as water sources run low, and forage supplies become more scarce
producers are pulling the trigger on reducing their herd size. Several herd
reductions and dispersals were included in the offering and a moderate number
of young bred cows and cow/calf pairs returned to the farm mostly out of the
area. Supply was heavy and demand good for slaughter classes.
