Boonville - Missouri Valley Commission Company: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 03/19/2013

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Receipts:  1250    Last Week:  420    Year Ago:  1085
 
   Compared to last week’s light receipts, steers and heifers sold on a 
lower undertone. Slaughter cows steady to 1.00 higher. The market continues to 
be under pressure from various sources, as the corn contracts closed higher and 
the live and feeder cattle contracts closed sharply lower again on Tuesday. Beef 
demand continues to be stagnate as well. Demand moderate. Supply heavy with 
several large consignments selling after holding several weeks due to snow and 
muddy conditions. The feeder offering consisted of 60 percent steers and bulls 
and 40 percent heifers with 61 percent over 600 lbs. Cows were 12 percent of the 
receipts.
