Joplin- Joplin Regional Stockyards: Special Value Added Feeder Cattle Report for 1/3/2013

Friday, January 4, 2013

Receipts:  6272    Year Ago:  4184

   No recent Value Added sale for a price comparison.  The last regular sale was
over two weeks ago and closed with a higher trend.  Comparable sales of steers
and heifers were steady with the last measurable test.  Demand good, supply
heavy.  Live Cattle and Feeder Cattle futures close with double and triple digit
gains with Corn contracts trading lower.  The weather remains cold and dry, 
making it ideal for feeding, gathering or marketing cattle.  The offering 
consisted of weaned, vaccinated calves with load lots and multiple load lots of
yearlings along with smaller drafts of cattle.  Several were Source and Aged
identified.  The feeder supply included 67 percent steers, 33 percent heifers,
with 68 percent over 600 lbs.
