Carthage- Joplin Regional Stockyards: Feeder Cattle Auction Close for 2/11/13

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Receipts:  5789    Last Week:  6600    Year Ago:  1990

   Compared to last week, steer and heifer calves and yearlings 4.00 to 6.00
lower.  Demand and supply moderate.  Live Cattle and Feeder Cattle futures
contracts closed modestly higher with Corn trading six to seven cents lower.
However, cattle contracts did not make up the losses from last week.  The calf
and yearling trade under pressure from concerns about beef demand and drought.
The feeder supply included 54 percent steers, 40 percent heifers, 06 percent 
bulls, with 59 percent over 600 lbs.
