Thursday, May 1, 2014

Receipts:  445    Last Week:  659    Year Ago:  621
 
   Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers were steady to 
7.00 higher. The feeder supply was light and demand was good. The 
seats were quite full this week; some with buyers, others with 
producers passing a gray and dreary day at the local sale barn. The 
offering varied, with some long-time weaned yearlings thin and 
ready to gain, and some calves having been trailer weaned on the 
way to town and showing their baby-softness. A good supply of 
slaughter cows sold 4.00 to 10.00 higher. Slaughter bulls were 3.00 
to 10.00 higher. Cows and bulls were 38 percent of total receipts. In
he feeder offering nearly 60 percent wer steers and bulls and 40 
percent heifers; 44 percent weighed over 600 lbs.
