Boonville- Farmers Livestock Auction: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 06/08/2010

Wednesday, June 9, 2010

Receipts:  1060    Last Week:  774    Year Ago:  517
 
   Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers sold steady to 3.00 higher. 
Slaughter cows steady to 2.00 higher. The highlight of this week’s feeder 
offering was two loads of 7-weight crossbred heifers; otherwise, buyers had to 
sort through small pkgs and lots to fill their orders. Many of the calves on 
offer came to town short-weaned, some unweaned actually, but discounts were not 
extreme. A large crowd was on hand for most of the day after strong storms moved 
through the area during the late morning hours. Supply moderate to heavy and 
demand moderate. Cows and bulls accounted for 20 percent of the total offering. 
The feeder supply consisted of 48 percent steers and bulls and 62 percent 
heifers; 46 percent of all the feeders weighed over 600 lbs.
