Carthage- Joplin Regional Stockyards: Feeder Cattle Auction Close for 4/9/12

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

Receipts:  4047    Last Week:  5031    Year Ago:  6010

   Compared to last week, steer calves under 550 lbs and heifer calves under 500
lbs steady to 4.00 higher, steers over 550 lbs and heifers over 500 lbs unevenly
steady.  Demand moderate, supply moderate to light.  There was more activity on
light weigh calves than last week as a few local buyers still looking for stock
to graze.  The cattle trade not getting much help as positive news is hard to
come by.  Fed Cattle traded 3.00 to 4.00 lower last week, the cattle futures
were uneven as contracts traded on either side of last Fridays close, with the
exception of April Live Cattle closing 1.00 higher and the Dow closed over 100
points down.  On the bright side, rain showers around the area and the early
spring has the grass growing.  The feeder supply included 52 percent steers,
43 percent heifers, 05 percent bulls, with 57 percent over 600 lbs.
