Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Receipts:  333    Week Ago:  1184    Year Ago:  621

   Too few feeder steers and heifers available to establish a trend with the 
bulk of the receipts bred cows and pairs. A good crowd was on hand for this 
month’s Special Cow Sale which consisted of mostly 2nd and 3rd stage cows 6 years 
of age and older. Slaughter cows steady to 3.00 higher.  Supply light and demand 
moderate. Cows and bulls accounted for 86 percent of the total offering.  The 
feeder supply consisted of 40 percent steers and 60 percent heifers; 23 percent 
of all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 lbs.
