Carthage- Joplin Regional Stockyards: Feeder Cattle Auction Close for 12/12/11

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Receipts:  8661    Last Week:  7597    Year Ago:  6350

   Compared to last week, steers 450 to 800 lbs steady, over 800 lbs 2.00 to
4.00 lower, steer calves under 450 lbs 4.00 to 8.00 lower, heifers steady to
2.00 lower.  Demand moderate to good, supply heavy.  Weather continues to be
dry making it easy for gathering/transporting cattle.  Producers taking
advantage of the good cattle trade as fall grazing is short and there is not
an abundance of hay available going into the winter.  Cattle futures traded
sharply lower all morning but closed on the plus side giving positive direction
to cattle buyers.  The feeder supply included 53 percent steers, 40 percent
heifers, 07 percent bulls, with 42 percent over 600 lbs.
