Boonville- Farmers Livestock Auction: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average 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 and solid market 
fundamentals, 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.***
