Boonville- Farmers Livestock Auction: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 03/23/2010

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Receipts:  413    Last Week:  1420    Year Ago:  1291
 
   Compared to last week, a light supply of feeder cattle sold with a 
higher undertone. Slaughter cows 2.00-4.00 higher. Snow and ice in the local 
area over the weekend made roads dangerous one day and worsened the mud 
conditions the next, and as a result receipts were severely curtailed. Supply 
light and demand moderate to good. Cows and bulls accounted for 33 percent of 
the total offering. The feeder supply consisted of 45 percent steers and bulls 
and 55 percent heifers; 40 percent of all the feeders weighed over 600 lbs.

***Cattlemen’s Note: Farmers Livestock will hold a Special Stock Cow Sale on 
Saturday, March 27th, expecting 700-800 head of bred cows, heifers and breeding 
bulls. Weigh cows sell at 4:30 p.m. followed by breeding stock at 6:30 p.m.***
