Carthage-Joplin Regional Stockyards: Cow and Bull Auction 12/05/12

Thursday, December 6, 2012

Receipts:  1471    Last Week:  1301   Last Year:  1260

   Compared to last Wednesday, the bulk of slaughter cows sold 2.00-3.00 lower
and the high-dressing cows sold 4.00-5.00 lower while slaughter bulls sold steady
to 1.00 lower.  Several dispersals were included in the offering from producers
running short on forage and several lots of cows that had checked open.  The
offering included a heavy supply of bred cows and a moderate supply of cow/calf
pairs.  Daytime temperatures remain well above normal for this time of year with
most of the area receiving between one-half and two inches of rain this week
and grass is responding. Supply was heavy and demand light to moderate for
slaughter classes.
