Boonville - Missouri Valley Commission Company: Cattle Auction Report for 11/05/13

Wednesday, November 6, 2013

Receipts:  463    Last Week:  731    Year Ago:  889

   Compared to the last tested feeder market two weeks ago, feeder steers sold 
steady to weak and heifers steady to 2.00 higher. Slaughter cows steady with 
last week. Rain showers throughout the region brought a good crowd ringside, 
some just comparing harvest progress but a few were on hand to pick around the 
edges throughout the afternoon. More lightweight calves on offer this week, but 
only those true weaned calves with 2 rounds of shots brought the top prices. 
Buyers are always mindful of how quickly a calf’s health can deteriorate, but 
particularly on a cool, rainy fall day.  Supply and demand moderate.  Cows and 
bulls accounted for 14 percent of the total offering.  The feeder supply 
included 42 percent steers and bulls and 58 percent heifers; 25 percent of all 
the feeder cattle weighed over 600 lbs.
