St. Joseph livestock

St. Joseph, Mo. (ap) -- Quotations for Wednesday:

Estimated Receipts: 700. Compared to last week steers calves sold steady with a few yearling steers trading steady to 1.00 higher. Heifer prices were mixed, with those under 600 lbs selling 1.00-3.00 higher and heavier weihgts 1.00-2.00 lower. A cool and rainy morning caused many to take a break from harvest and go to the sale barn. Yearling supplies are tight locally, just as they are in other areas. Calves are in abundance but grass is plentiful in north-western Missouri and northeastern Kansas, so receipts are expected to remain light for at least another month. This year is already within the top ten on record for moisture in the Kansas City region, and we still have two and a half months to go.
