Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Receipts:  578    Last Week:  752    Year Ago:  1009
 
   Compared to last week, unweaned/fleshy calves under 550 lbs had a
lower undertone on a lighter test; weaned heavier calves and yearlings
mostly steady to some 2.00 lower.  Excessive heat limited demand for
bawling calves, but demand for long weaned offerings was good.  Slaughter
cows firm.  Cows and bulls were 16 percent of receipts.  In the feeder
supply, steers and bulls were 50 percent of the run; heifers 50 percent.
Near 50 percent of feeders weighed over 600 lbs.
