Carthage - Joplin Regional Stockyards: Feeder Cattle Auction Close for 03/09/2010

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

Receipts:  9900    Week Ago:  10,285    Year Ago:  6502

   Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers traded steady to 1.00 lower. 
Feeder cattle opened the day a little weaker, mostly steady to 2.00 lower, but 
gained some momentum throughout the sale with several of the top prices coming 
late in the afternoon. All cattle found very firm support on the lower end of 
last week’s price spreads but for most weights and classes of cattle, could not 
quite reach the market tops realized a week ago. Several consecutive days of 
spring-like weather gave producers an opportunity to gather and haul their stock 
and although the supply was very heavy for the second week in a row, the large 
numbers were still, for the most part, readily absorbed. Supply heavy and demand 
moderate. The feeder supply consisted of 53 percent steers, 44 percent heifers 
and 03 percent bulls; 52 percent of all the feeders weighed over 600 lbs.
