Boonville - Missouri Valley Commission Company: Cattle Auction Report for 9/17/2013

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Receipts:  591    Last Week:  544    Year Ago:  N/A

   Compared to last week, feeder steers under 700 lbs 2.00 to 4.00 lower, steers 
over 700 lbs and all weights of heifers steady. Slaughter cows steady to 2.00 
lower. Buyers are no longer as concerned about extreme heat as they were the 
past couple of weeks but instead concerns have shifted to seasonal temperature 
swings, with cool nights and warm days expected. Those fears were reflected in 
the sale price of any cattle that came through the ring in fleshy and/or 
unweaned condition that would put them at greater risk of respiratory distress. 
Supply and demand moderate. Cows and bulls accounted for 20 percent of the total 
offering. The feeder supply consisted of 58 percent steers and bulls and 42 
percent heifers; 68 percent of all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 lbs.
