Boonville-Farmers Livestock Auction: Cattle Auction Report for 06/29/2010

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Receipts:  750    Week Ago:  996    Year Ago:  1483 

   Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers steady to 1.00 higher, 
except steers under 550 lbs 4.00 to 5.00 higher. Slaughter cows mostly 2.00 
higher. With plenty of grass available for this time of year, many producers who 
had previously consigned cattle for this week’s sale decided to ride it out 
awhile longer and see how things shake out. Trade was active on the groups of 
cattle that did make it to town this week, particularly the lightweight steers. 
Supply and demand moderate. Cows and bulls accounted for 23 percent of the total 
offering. The feeder supply consisted of 35 percent steers and bulls and 65 
percent heifers; 37 percent of all the feeders weighed over 600 lbs. 

***Cattlemen’s Note: Farmers Livestock will be closed the next two weeks. Next 
sale date Tuesday, July 20th.***
