Boonville- Farmers Livestock Auction: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 05/11/2010

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Receipts:  819    Week Ago:  1274    Year Ago:  925

   Compared to last week, feeder steers under 550 lbs steady to 2.00 higher, 
steers over 550 lbs and all weights of heifers steady to 2.00 lower. Slaughter 
cows steady. Receipts were curtailed by heavy rains in the area throughout the 
day Monday and overnight into Tuesday morning, with some reports of as much as 
three inches in the rain gauge. More precipitation is expected right through the 
rest of the week, promising to keep local row croppers out of the tractor for 
the time being. A nice stretch of warm temps and sunshine would sure be welcomed 
to dry things out and give grass a jump start, but that doesn’t look likely for 
the next several days. Supply and demand moderate. Cows and bulls accounted for 
21 percent of the total offering. The feeder supply consisted of 52 percent 
steers, 10 percent  bulls and 38 percent heifers; 41 percent of all the feeders 
weighed over 600 lbs.
