Kingsville - Kingsville Livestock Auction: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 09/17/2013

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Receipts:  1294    Last Week:  1138    Year Ago:  1569
 
   Compared to last week, calves and yearlings sold steady.  The best demand 
continues to be for lighter-weight yearling feeders weighing from 550-750 lbs 
where additional firmness in the market was noted.  Farmers are expected to 
harvest an all-time record sized crop this year and available feeder supplies 
remain extremely tight.  Fall is in the air, along with wide temperature 
swings, and sellers can expect their unweaned and/or fleshy calves to sell 
well off the market highs for their weight group.  Slaughter cows and bulls 
sold 2.00-3.00 lower than last week.  Receipts were made up of 13 percent 
cows and bulls with the balance feeders.  The feeder run included 54 percent 
steers, 38 percent heifers, and 8 percent feeder bulls with around 59 percent 
weighing over 600 lbs.
