Carthage-Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction 9/19/12

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Receipts:  1080    Last Week:  1208    Last Year:  1421

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows sold 2.00-3.00 lower and slaughter
bulls sold 3.00 lower. The offering included a moderate supply of bred cows and
a light supply of cow/calf pairs. A couple small dispersals provided some good
quality take home cows. Recent rains and cooler weather have allowed the fescue
that survived the drought to begin greening up across the area. Supply and
demand were moderate for slaughter classes.
