Wednesday, September 8, 2010

Receipts:  1131    Week Ago:  688    Year Ago:  755

   Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers under 600 lbs sold 1.00 to 
2.00 higher, over 600 lbs steady to 2.00 lower. Slaughter cows 1.00 to mostly 
2.00 lower. Quality ran pretty deep with lots of calves in the mix, which is 
most likely a sign of things to come for the next several weeks. Sharply lower 
cattle contracts at the CME didnít seem to pressure the local market too much. 
Supply and demand moderate. Cows and bulls accounted for 17 percent of the total 
offering. The feeder supply consisted of 57 percent steers and bulls and 43 
percent heifers; 34 percent of all the feeders weighed over 600 lbs.
