Joplin- Joplin Regional Stockyards: Special Wean-Vac and Source Verified Feeder Cattle Report for 1/5/2012

Friday, January 6, 2012

Receipts:  4184    Year Ago:  5947

   No recent Special Value Added Sale for a price comparison.  The last Special
Value Added Sale was the first of December, 2011.  Demand good, supply moderate.
Comparisons to Monday's regular feeder cattle sale is always difficult as there
is more variation in condition, quality and group size in the regular sales.
However, comparable sales of steers under 600 lbs 5.00 to 7.00 higher and 
heifers under 600 lbs 3.00 to 5.00 higher, steers and heifers over 600 lbs
steady to 1.00 higher.  Flesh condition on the plus side of medium to the minus
side of fleshy, and weigh-ups favored the sellers.  The sale offering was 
weaned, vaccinated, heifers guaranteed open, with many Source and Aged verified.
The feeder supply included 63 steers, 38 percent heifers, with 66 percent over
600 lbs.
