Ozarks Regional Stockyards, West Plains, Missouri, reported receipts of 2,427 head of feeder cattle selling on Sept. 1, compared to 3,142 head on Aug. 25 and 2,158 head a year ago, according to the USDA-Missouri Department of Agriculture Market News, Jefferson City, Missouri.

Compared to the previous week, the feeder steers and heifers were trading $2 to $4 higher with spots selling $6 higher. The yearlings were not well tested; however, undertones were higher. The demand was good on a light to moderate supply. Additional rains, following those from Hurricane Laura, have turned the pastures green and increased the demand for grass-ready calves. The supply included 100% feeder cattle with 51% steers, 45% was heifers and 4% was bulls. The feeder cattle supply weighing over 600 pounds was 47%.
