Kingsville- Kingsville Livestock Auction: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 05/25/2010

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Receipts:  2611    Last Week:  1747,    Last Year:  735
 
   Compared to last week, steer calves under 500 lbs on a light test 
a few comparable sales sold 4.00-10.00 lower, with 500-650 lb steers selling 
3.00-5.00 lower and yearling steers weighing 750-850 lbs sold 2.00-3.00 
lower.  Heifer calves 400-450 lbs sold 2.00-5.00 lower, 450-600 lb heifers 
selling steady to 3.00 lower and heifers weighing 600-700 lbs sold 3.00-5.00 
lower. Yearling heifers over 700 lbs were not tested.  Outside market 
pressure from the sharply lower stock market this week, lower live and feeder 
cattle futures and lower fed cattle prices have feeder cattle prices on the 
defensive side this week.  In the feeder supply, steers and bulls accounted 
for 60 percent of the run, heifers 40 slaughter cows accounted for 25 percent 
of total receipts.
