Carthage- Joplin Regional Stockyards: Feeder Cattle Auction Close for 12/3/12

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Receipts:  7537    Last Week:  9525    Year Ago:  4397

   Compared to last week, steer and heifer calves steady to 2.00 lower, except
steer calves under 500 lbs 2.00 to 5.00 lower, yearling steers steady, yearling
heifers steady to 2.00 lower.  Demand moderate, supply moderate to heavy.  The
bulk of the calf offering was fleshy, un-weaned calves.  The un-seasonally warm
temperature has helped stretch the grazing season, but many producers are
concerned about the abnormally dry conditions.  The feeder supply included 52
percent steers, 39 percent heifers, 10 percent bulls, with 43 percent over 600
lbs.
