Sedalia- Central Missouri Sales Company: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 03/22/2010

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Receipts:  111    Last Week:  700    Year Ago:  950
 
   Compared to last week, there were too few feeders on this weather market
test to establish a trend.  With an early spring snow storm on saturday,
supply was very light.  Demand moderate.  Slaughter cows traded 3.00 to
4.00 higher also on a light test.  While field conditions were improving
up till the storm, this was another set-back for early field work.  Cows
and bulls were 30 percent of receipts.  In the feeder supply, steers and
bulls were 45 percent of the run; heifers 55 percent.  Near 9 percent of
feeders weighed over 600 lbs.
