Sedalia- Central Missouri Sales Company: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 07/19/2010

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

Receipts:  570    Last Week:  660    Year Ago:  1092
 
   Compared to last week, feeder prices were mixed but mostly had a lower
undertone on a weather market.  With a heat index near 110, few buyers
were very active.  The recent run-up in corn prices could also have been
a factor, affecting demand.  Supply was also affected by the heat.
Slaughter cows traded firm-1.00 higher.  Cows and bulls were 26 percent
of receipts.  In the feeder supply, steers and bulls were 56 percent of
the run; heifers 44 percent.  Near 51 percent of feeders weighed
over 600 lbs.
