Sedalia- Central Missouri Sales Company: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 05/23/2011

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Receipts:  400    Last Week:  546    Year Ago:  801
 
   Compared to last week, feeders had a much lower undertone on a light
test.  Slaughter cows sold steady.  With continually weakening cattle
futures and a firm grain market, feeder prices continue to be under
pressure.  Demand best for weaned light calves.  Cows and bulls were
16 percent of receipts.  In the feeder supply, steers and bulls were
50 percent of the run; heifers 50 percent.  Near 15 percent of feeders
weighed over 600 lbs.
