The Ozarks Regional Stockyards, West Plains, Missouri, reported 3,410 head of cattle selling June 11, compared to 3,069 head the previous week and 4,531 head a year ago, according to the USDA-Missouri Department of Agriculture Market News, Jefferson City, Missouri.

Compared to the previous week, the steer calves were trading unevenly from $2 lower to $4 higher while yearling steers were trading $4 to $8 higher. The heifer calves were trading $1 to $3 higher and yearling heifers were not well tested. The demand was good on a moderate supply that included several pot load drafts of yearling steers. The numbers sitting around ringside were down as a string of dry days is allowing producers to cut and bale hay. The supply included 100% feeder cattle with 61% steers, 34% were heifers and 5% were bulls. The feeder cattle supply weighing over 600 pounds was 49%.
