Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Receipts:  375    Week Ago:  466    Year Ago:  387  

   Compared to last week, feeder steers sold 5.00 to 10.00 higher and feeder 
heifers 8.00 to 12.00 higher, with heifers under 500 lbs as much as 20.00 
higher. A very limited offering of slaughter cows traded steady. Different week 
but same story, sharply higher trade and lots of heads shaking as the gavel 
fell, wondering when or what will slow the market down. Supply light and demand 
good to very good. Cows and bulls accounted for 11 percent of the total 
offering.  The feeder supply consisted of 66 percent steers and bulls and 44 
percent heifers; 39 percent of all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 lbs.  

***Scheduling Note: The next cattle sale at Missouri Valley Commission Company
