Boonville-Missouri Valley Commission Company: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 01/14/2014

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

Receipts:  1301    Week Ago:  N/A    Year Ago:  995 

   No recent price comparison available as the last sale was held 4 weeks ago, 
due to the regularly scheduled holiday break and last week’s cancellation after  
bitterly cold temperatures moved into the midwest. The feeder market has 
exploded in recent weeks and this sale was no exception, with most weights and 
classes of cattle trading easily 15.00-30.00/cwt higher than a month ago. Supply 
heavy and demand good. Cows and bulls accounted for 20 percent of the total 
offering.  The feeder supply consisted of 56 percent steers and bulls and 44 
percent heifers; 57 percent of all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 lbs.
