Boonville- Farmers Livestock Auction: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 10/05/2010

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

Receipts:  709    Week Ago: 575    Year Ago: 645 

   Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers sold steady to firm, with 
the exception of 550-700 lb heifers trading 2.00 to 5.00 higher on some new 
interest. Slaughter cows 1.00 to 2.00 lower on a light supply. Tuesday’s 
sharply higher corn futures had little effect on the local market, even with 
lots of unweaned/unworked calves in the mix. A fairly light crowd on hand again 
this week with lots of locals taking advantage of a favorable extended forecast 
to get crops out. Supply and demand moderate. Cows and bulls accounted for 13 
percent of the total offering. The feeder supply consisted of 61 percent steers 
and bulls and 39 percent heifers; 45 percent of all the feeder cattle weighed 
over 600 lbs.
