Boonville - Missouri Valley Commission Company: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 08/27/2013

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

Receipts:  236    Last Week:  187    Year Ago:  N/A

   Not enough feeder cattle on hand to test the market. Slaughter cows steady. 
The current late season heat wave has made any cattle movement not just 
unpleasant but downright dangerous with temperatures reaching the mid to upper 
90s. With no rain in sight and the extreme heat forecasted for the foreseeable 
future, crops and pastures will certainly look different in a week or two. 
Supply light and demand moderate. Cows and bulls accounted for 30 percent of the 
total offering. The feeder supply consisted of 48 percent steers and bulls and 
52 percent heifers; 27 percent of all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 lbs. 

***Scheduling note: Missouri Valley Commission Company will hold a Special 
Yearling Sale next week, featuring 800-900 head of heavyweight cattle.***
