Wednesday, April 9, 2014

Receipts:  1184    Week Ago:  570    Year Ago:  1008

   Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers under 600 lbs sold weak to 
3.00 lower. Heavier weights were very scarce last week, but where comparisons 
could be made, sold 8.00 to 10.00 higher this week with some extra buying power 
present, all with a specific interest in the couple load lots on offer as well 
as the other large strings of yearlings sorted just right and ready to put 
together. Slaughter cows 2.00 to 4.00 lower. Supply heavy and demand moderate to 
good. Cows and bulls accounted for 16 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.
