Wednesday, March 21, 2012

Receipts:  1085    Last Week:  937    Year Ago:  1451
 
   Compared to last week, feeder steers under 400 lbs 4.00-6.00 higher,
over 400 lbs 3.00-6.00 lower. Heifers 4.00-6.00 lower. Slaughter cows
3.00-5.00 higher, slaughter bulls 1.00-3.00 higher. Several new crop
calves in the offering, some right off the cow, others with at least
one round of shots and weaned. However, those tend to take the back seat
in price to calves with compensatory gain in their future. Demand moderate.
Supply light to moderate. Slaughter cows made up 10 percent of the offering,
slaughter bulls 1 percent and feeders 89 percent. The feeder supply included 54
percent steers, 6 percent bulls and 40 percent heifers. Near 38 percent of the
run weighed over 600 lbs.
