The Ozarks Regional Stockyards, West Plains, Missouri, reported receipts of 3,311 head of cattle selling on July 9, compared to 4,245 head selling on June 25 and 4,406 head a year ago, according to the USDA-Missouri Department of Agriculture Market News, Jefferson City, Missouri.

When compared to two weeks ago, the steer calves were trading $5 to $10 higher with heifer calves trading $4 to $8 higher. The yearlings were not well tested; however, the undertones were sharply higher. The demand was good on a moderate supply, which was impacted by the heat and humidity. The cash markets recovered some of their pre-July 4 losses as the cattle futures saw triple digit gains. The supply included 100% feeder cattle with 53% steers, 42% were heifers and 4% were bulls. The feeder cattle supply weighing over 600 pounds was 45%.
