West Plains- Ozarks Regional Stockyards: Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 10/16/2012

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Receipts:  2423    Last Week:  3359   Year Ago:  3425

   Compared to last week, steer calves steady to 3.00 lower, although 300-400
lbs and 500-550 lbs mostly weaned blks were fully steady.  Light yearlings
600-700 lbs sold 2.00-4.00 higher, weights over 700 lbs not well tested under-
tone weak.  Heifer calves steady to 2.00 lower, except 575-625 lbs mostly blk-
hides steady to 2.00 higher, Yearling heifers over 650 lbs limited test fully
steady.  Supply light to moderate.  Demand good, but best on higher quality
weaned calves and lighter yearlings.  Buyers and orders fairly selective for
condition, kind and color, however not nearly as much as in past Octobers, when
normally no one seemingly wants to do much with calves until after a hard frost
and temperatures stabilize, especially true with calves fresh off the cow.
Cattle futures made nice gains Tuesday as corn was unable to recover the .15
cent loss from Monday’s session.  Supply consisted of 54 percent steers and 46
percent heifers.  Near 26 percent weighed over 600 lbs.
