Boonville- Farmers Livestock Auction: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 08/17/2010

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

Receipts:  663    Week Ago:  462    Year Ago:  1041 

   Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers steady to 1.00 higher. 
Slaughter cows steady to 2.00 higher. Buyers had some small strings of cattle to 
build around this week with plenty of singles to tack on where needed. This 80 
degree day was certainly welcome in mid-August, especially after the recent 
prolonged heat wave, but temps are expected to be back in the 90s by the 
weekend. Supply and demand moderate. Cows and bulls accounted for 11 percent of 
the total offering. The feeder supply consisted of 48 percent steers and bulls 
and 52 percent heifers; 68 percent of all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 
lbs.

***Cattlemen’s Note: Farmers Livestock will hold a Special Stock Cow Sale next 
Tuesday, August 24th, expecting 600+ head of bred cows, heifers and breeding 
bulls. Weigh cows sell at 4:30 p.m. followed by breeding stock at 6:30 p.m.***
