Joplin- Joplin Regional Stockyards: Special Wean-Vac and Source Verified Feeder Cattle Report for 1/18/2010

Friday, February 19, 2010

Receipts:  4483    Four Weeks Ago:  6403    Year Ago:  6572

The last Special Valued Added sale was four weeks ago and too far back for
a meaningful comparison.  Demand good, supply moderate.  Flesh condition
covered the full range from thin to fleshy, with noticeably a higher percent
of fleshier cattle than recently seen.  Livestock futures continue to post
moderate gains, along with good demand for grazing cattle added positive
support to the feeder cattle trade.  Comparisons to Monday's regular feeder
cattle sale are always difficult but comparable sales of steers under 800 lbs
2.00 to 4.00 higher, over 800 lbs steady to 1.00 higher, heifers under 600 lbs
3.00 to 6.00 higher, over 600 lbs steady to 2.00 higher.  Cattle weaned,
vaccinated, heifers guaranteed open, several source and aged verified through
a PVP (Process Verified Program) or QSA (Quality Systems Assessment) program.
The QSA and PVP cattle will be RFID tagged.  The feeder supply included 55
percent steers, 45 percent heifers, with 67 percent over 600 lbs.
