Wednesday, June 2, 2010

Receipts:  774    Week Ago:  1187    Year Ago:  1261

   Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers sold steady to weak. 
Slaughter cows steady. With the exception of three plus loads of 7-weight 
yearling steers, the feeder cattle were consigned in very small groups. A 
relatively light crowd was on hand this week at Farmers Livestock as most local 
farmers are in the field either finishing planting beans or cutting hay. Supply 
light to moderate and demand moderate. Cows and bulls accounted for 20 percent 
of the total offering. The feeder supply consisted of 85 percent steers and 
bulls and 15 percent heifers; 73 percent of all the feeders weighed over 600 
lbs.
