West Plains regional cattle sales report


The Ozarks Regional Stockyards, West Plains, Mo., reported receipts of 5,935 head on Dec. 17, compared to 3,304 head last year, according to the Missouri Department of Agriculture-USDA Market News Service, Jefferson City, Mo.

Compared to the last sale of two weeks ago, the feeder steers traded steady to $3 higher while feeder heifers were steady to $2 lower. The supply was heavy due to last week’s sale being snowed out. Being this was the last sale of 2013, it also contributed to the heavier supply. The demand was good to very good.
