Carthage- Joplin Regional Stockyards: Feeder Cattle Auction Close for 2/15/2010

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Receipts:  10,110    Last Week:  3156    Year Ago:  8178

   Compared to last week, steers under 700 lbs and heifers under 650 lbs
3.00 to 6.00 higher, steers over 700 lbs and heifers over 650 lbs 1.00 to
3.00 higher.  Demand good, supply heavy.  Winter temperatures again invaded
the four state area with the highs expected to be in the mid twenties.  This
helped freeze-up lanes and corrals enough to load and transport cattle to
market.  A stronger slaughter steer and heifer trade and expectations of a
lower cost of gain with forage or grain has helped drive the stocker and
feeder cattle trade higher.  The feeder supply included 55 percent steers,
42 percent heifers, 02 percent bulls, with 55 percent over 600 lbs.

***Note: Joplin Regional Stockyards will have a Special Valued Added Sale,
Thursday, February 18, 2010.  Expecting 4000 head of weaned and vaccinated
calves and yearlings.
