Carthage- Joplin Regional Stockyards: Feeder Cattle Auction Close for 1/16/12

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Receipts:  9101    Last Week:  9523    Year Ago:  8011

   Compared to last week, steer and heifer calves under 450 lbs steady, steers
450 to 650 lbs 3.00 to 5.00 higher, heifers 450 to 700 lbs 5.00 to 10.00 higher,
steers over 650 lbs and heifers over 700 lbs steady to 3.00 higher.  Demand
good, supply heavy.  The CME was closed, but the last trading day had Feeder
Cattle contracts above 152.00 and Live Cattle trading above 125.00 into the
spring and summer.  The offering was rapidly absorbed as Buyers competed for
ownership.  The winter has been favorable for background cattle as the receipts
over 600 lbs remains close to half of the offering.  The weather remains dry and
mild giving Producers and Buyers opportunity to transport cattle without delays.
The feeder supply included 53 percent steers, 40 percent heifers, 07 percent
bulls, with 49 percent over 600 lbs.
