Carthage- Joplin Regional Stockyards: Feeder Cattle Auction Close for 12/17/12

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Receipts:  4701    Last Week:  6226    Year Ago:  2699

   Compared to last week, steer and heifer calves 2.00 to 5.00 higher, yearlings
steady to 2.00 higher.  Demand good, supply moderate.  Corn contacts trading
lower at the CBOT and Live Cattle and Feeder Cattle contracts sharply higher at
the CME.  Cattle Buyers a little more aggressive to fill orders as they have
only a few sale days left to inventory cattle in 2012.  The feeder supply
included 52 percent steers, 40 percent heifers, 09 percent bulls, with 43
percent over 600 lbs.

Note: This is the last feeder cattle sale at Joplin Regional Stockyards for
2012.  JRS will be closed December 20th through January 1st.  The first feeder
cattle sale in 2013 will be a Special Value Added sale on Thursday, January 3rd.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
