Ozarks Regional Stockyards, West Plains, Missouri, reports receipts of 2,624 head of feeder cattle selling on Sept. 8, compared to 2,427 head on Sept. 1 and 2,730 head a year ago, according to the USDA-Missouri Department of Agriculture Market News, Jefferson City, Missouri.

Compared to last week, steer calves were trading $2 to $3 lower while heifer calves were unevenly steady from $2 lower to $2 higher. The demand was moderate on a moderate supply. Concerns about cooler temperatures, predicted by the weekend, had buyers in search of calves weaned 60-plus days with unweaned or short-weaned calves in less demand. The supply included 100% feeder cattle with 51% steers, 43% was heifers and 6% was bulls. The feeder cattle supply weighing over 600 pounds was 43%.
