Joplin- Joplin Regional Stockyards: Special Wean-Vac and Source Verified Feeder Cattle Report for 3/18/2010

Friday, March 19, 2010

Receipts:  2970    Four Weeks Ago:  4483    Year Ago:  0

The last Special Valued Added sale was four weeks ago and too far back for
a meaningful market comparison.  Demand good to very good, supply moderate.
Livestock futures continue to post moderate gains, along with good demand for
grazing cattle adding support to the feeder cattle trade.  Comparisons to 
Monday's regular feeder cattle sale are always difficult but comparable sales
of steers under 700 lbs and heifers under 800 lbs 3.00 to 8.00 higher, steers
over 700 lbs 1.00 to 3.00 higher, heifers over 800 lbs steady.  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 44 
percent steers, 56 percent heifers, with 46 percent over 600 lbs.
