Boonville- Missouri Valley Commission Company: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 10/30/2012

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Receipts:  944    Last Week:  616    Year Ago:  1182
 
   Compared to last week, steers and heifers under 500 lbs 1.00-2.00
higher, over 500 lbs steady. Slaughter cows 1.00-2.00 lower. In the 
wake of hurricane Sandy, there was still optimism on the board as both
the live cattle and feeder cattle contracts closed up with substantial gains. 
However, feedlot trade has been mixed early in the week with a few sales 
steady to 1.00 lower. Demand moderate. Supply consisted of 79 percent
feeders and 21 percent cows and bulls. In the feeder offering, 51 percent
were steers and bulls, 49 percent heifers and 41 percent of the feeders
were over 600 lbs.
