Kingsville- Kingsville Livestock Auction: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 12/20/2011

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Receipts:  1140    Last Week:  2909    Year Ago:  1907
 
   Compared to last week, steer and bull calves under 700 lbs had a much
lower undertone; heifer calves sold steady to 5.00 lower.  With a
combination of a much lighter run and average feeder quality being less
attractive than normal, prices were not as well tested as last week.
Demand was moderate to good.  Blizzard conditions in the western feed lots
plus rain locally limited demand.  Slaughter cows traded near steady.  Cows
and bulls were 30 percent of receipts.  In the feeder supply, steers and
bulls were 59 percent of the run; heifers 41 percent.  Near 44 percent of
feeders weighed over 600 lbs.  There will be a sale next week.
