Boonville- Farmers Livestock Auction: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 01/18/2011

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

Receipts:  2487    Last Week:  326    Year Ago:  1600
 
   Compared to the last tested market two weeks ago, feeder steers sold 6.00 to 
9.00 higher with several spots of 10.00 to 12.00 higher. Feeder heifers under 
700 lbs 4.00 to 9.00 higher, over 700 lbs steady to 2.00 higher. Slaughter cows 
2.00 to 4.00 higher. Lots and lots of top notch cattle in town this week and all 
the regular buyers came in with guns blazing, not letting up until the last of 
their loads were full or nearly so. Nothing seems to be able to trip this feeder 
market up and several spectators at the local barn wondered where things would 
have topped out if green grass was right around the corner instead of the 
snowstorm that is expected to move into the area within the next 24 hours. 
Supply heavy and demand good to very good. Cows and bulls accounted for 06 
percent of the total offering. The feeder supply consisted of 63 percent steers 
and bulls and 37 percent heifers; 60 percent of all the feeder cattle weighed 
over 600 lbs.
