Joplin- Joplin Regional Stockyards: Special Wean-Vac and Source Verified Feeder Cattle Report for 6/21/2012

Friday, June 22, 2012

Receipts:  4068    Year Ago:  5446

   No recent Value Added Sale for a price comparison.  Demand moderate to good,
supply moderate.  Comparisons to Monday's regular feeder cattle sale is 
difficult due to the variation in quality, group size and mostly condition, but
comparable sales of steer calves under 700 lbs and heifer calves under 600 lbs
steady to 3.00 higher, heavier weights steady.  Bulk of the offering medium to
medium plus on flesh with weigh-upís favoring the sellers.  The sale offering
was weaned, vaccinated, heifers guaranteed open, with most Sourced identified
and many Source and Aged identified.  Corn futures closed sharply lower after
several days on the positive side, but Live Cattle and Feeder Cattle future
contracts having a hard time finding sure footing.  The feeder supply included
57 percent steers, 43 percent heifers, with 58 percent over 600 lbs.
