Kingdom City- Callaway Livestock Center: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 07/02/2012

Tuesday, July 3, 2012

Receipts:  800    Week Ago:  1246    Year Ago:  No Sale

   The bulk of Monday’s holiday week supply consisted of small packages
of calves with a lower undertone noted, but few good comparisons with
last week.  Yearling cattle were scarce and the slaughter cows traded
steady.  Grain prices continue to work higher as the hot/dry weather is
stressing most of the Midwestern crops.  A popup thundershower did hit
the area Monday afternoon during the sale, but many more are needed
along with some cooler temperatures to really improve conditions.
Demand light to moderate and the supply light.  Cows and bulls accounted
for 30 percent of the run and feeders 70 percent.  In the feeder supply,
steers and bulls made up approximately 52 percent of the run; heifers
48 percent; steers and heifers over 600 lbs totaled around 16 percent.
