Boonville - Missouri Valley Commission Company: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 08/19/2014

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Receipts:  1086    Week Ago:  230    Year Ago:  187

   Compared to the last tested market from two weeks ago, feeder cattle traded 
with a sharply higher undertone. Slaughter cows steady. Several large strings of 
top notch yearlings in town this week, creating a clamor to own the best of the 
bunch. A very active market right from the start, with several of the highest 
prices reached late in the day as buyers squared up. A small number of bred cows 
and pairs were featured right up front, most of which were offered in single 
head lots and readily snatched up by a couple local cattlemen looking to add a 
few fall calvers to their herds. Cows and bulls accounted for 17 percent of the 
total offering.  The feeder supply consisted of 54 percent steers and bulls and 
46 percent heifers; 74 percent of all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 lbs.
