Boonville- Missouri Valley Commission Company: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 04/09/2013

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Receipts:  1008    Last Week:  1163    Year Ago:  1137
 
   Compared to last week, steers under 550 lbs 2.00-4.00 lower, over 550 lbs
2.00 lower. Heifers under 500 lbs 3.00 higher, over 500 lbs 1.00-2.00 
lower. Slaughter cows weak to 1.00 lower. Demand and supply moderate. 
Several buyers in attendance looking for grass cattle as the green grass 
is starting to grow with warmer temperatures. However, parts of grazing 
country to the west is still in need of some rain runoff to fill water sources, 
limiting demand to some degree and keeping bidders somewhat reserved while
waiting for a better guarantee. The feeder supply consisted of 58 percent steers 
and bulls and 42 percent heifers with 49 percent of the feeders weighing over 
600 lbs. Cows were 20 percent of the receipts.
