Boonville - Missouri Valley Commission Company: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 10/07/2014

Wednesday, October 8, 2014

Receipts:  851    Week Ago:  346    Year Ago:  382

   Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers under 600 lbs traded 2.00 to 
6.00 higher. No true price comparison for bigger weights, however, a heavy 
supply of yearling cattle were readily absorbed at sharply higher price levels. 
Slaughter cows 1.00 to 3.00 lower. Lots of good cattle in town this week with a 
pretty even split of steers and heifers. Discounts have not been as severe this 
fall (so far) for unweaned or unworked cattle, as buyers are more willing to 
take a chance on the health of those cattle than they are to risk going home 
with orders left to fill. Supply moderate and demand good to very good. Cows and 
bulls accounted for 09 percent of the total offering. The feeder supply 
consisted of 52 percent steers and bulls and 48 percent heifers; 66 percent of 
all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 lbs.
