Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Receipts:  1911    Last Week:  2806    Year Ago:  1809
 
   Compared to last week, calves under 550 lbs weak to 8.00 lower on a
lesser test with most of the decline on heifer calves; heavier feeders
2.00 to 3.00 higher on a good test.  With a major snow storm and dropping
temps, demand for light calves was reduced.  There was a very good quality
run of heavier feeders.  Slaughter cows steady with lean cows 1.00 to 2.00
higher.  Cows and bulls were 5 percent of receipts.  In the feeder supply,
steers and bulls were 60 percent of the run; heifers 40 percent.  Near
58 percent of feeders weighed over 600 lbs.
