Carthage-Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction 11/28/12

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Receipts:  1301    Last Week:  842   Last Year:  1451

   Compared to last Wednesday, slaughter cows and slaughter bulls sold steady.
As producers cull their herds in preparation for the winter months there are a
larger than normal number of young open cows coming to market. The offering
included a heavy supply of bred cows, with good demand for those take-home
cows, but only a handful of cow/calf pairs. Supply was heavy and demand
moderate to good for slaughter classes.
