Boonville - Missouri Valley Commission Company: Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 10/28/2014

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Receipts:  662    Week Ago:  611    Year Ago:  731

   No recent price comparison available as the last tested feeder market was 
three weeks ago. In general, true comparisons to that sale were scarce but did 
show a lower undertone, with the exception of 500-600 lb heifers, which were 
this week’s hottest commodity. Lots of good yearling cattle on hand with many 
carrying some flesh. The discounts for those types were more severe than in 
recent weeks. Slaughter cows steady to 2.00 lower. Supply moderate and demand 
good. Cows and bulls accounted for 09 percent of the total offering. The feeder 
supply consisted of 58 percent steers and bulls and 42 percent heifers: 71 
percent of all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 lbs.
