Boonville- Farmers Livestock Auction: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 09/21/2010

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Receipts:  942    Last Week:  678    Year Ago:  657
 
   Compared to last week, feeder steers under 650 lbs sold 2.00 to 4.00 lower, 
over 650 lbs steady to firm. Feeder heifers under 600 lbs 3.00 to 5.00 lower, 
over 600 lbs steady to 2.00 lower. Slaughter cows 2.00 to 4.00 lower. Pretty 
nice run of cattle in town with several attractive consignments available. 
Discounts were more evident this week on the soft, unweaned calves, typical for 
this time of year when cool nights and warm days are the norm and a huge number 
of calves are starting to flood the market. Supply and demand moderate. Cows and 
bulls accounted for 26 percent of the total offering. The feeder supply 
consisted of 77 percent steers and bulls and 33 percent heifers; 45 percent of 
all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 lbs. 

***Cattlemen’s Note: Farmers Livestock Auction will hold a Special Stock Cow 
Sale this Saturday, September 25th, expecting 400-500 head of bred cows, heifers 
and breeding bulls. Weigh cows sell at 4:30 p.m. with breeding stock to follow
