Boonville- Farmers Livestock Auction: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 10/12/2010

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

Receipts:  409    Last Week:  709    Year Ago:  447
 
   Compared to last week, a very light supply of feeder steers and heifers 
traded with a sharply lower undertone. Slaughter cows steady to 2.00 higher.  
Lots of singles, odds and unweaned calves this week, as well as an unusually 
high percentage of feeder bulls in the mix. Pretty quiet day at the local barn 
with buyers not overly eager to own anything posing much risk in light of 
seasonal health concerns and a soaring corn market. Supply and demand light. 
Cows and bulls accounted for 18 percent of the total offering. The feeder supply 
consisted of 46 percent steers and bulls and 54 percent heifers; 29 percent of 
all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 lbs.
