Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Receipts:  5182    Last Week:   3924    Year Ago:  4094

   Compared to last week, yearling feeder steers sold 3.00-7.00 higher and 
yearling heifers were 3.00-5.00 higher both in active trading.  All classes of 
steer and heifer calves traded 2.00-4.00 higher in a lighter test.  Demand was 
best for 800-850 lb steers with those averaging a higher price than the 7 
weights.  Price spreads on the heifers were much wider as their sale was much 
more dependent on quality and flesh condition.  Supply included 60 percent 
steers, 36 percent heifers, and 4 percent feeder bulls.  Around 71 percent 
weighed over 600 lbs.  Note:  The Joplin Regional Stockyards have scheduled a 
Special Video Auction for this Thursday Jul 18th at 1:00 pm.
