Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 5/24/2016

Receipts:  642    Week Ago:  2435    Year Ago:  2353

   Compared to last week, on a very light test steers and heifers
sold with a steady undertone. Receipts were obviously hampered by
the weekend holiday. Most in west central Missouri have been
experiencing extremely wet conditions and farmers are eager to
get back in the field to continue or finish up planting beans.  
Demand was moderate with a very light supply. The feeder offering 
consisted of near 52 percent steers, 42 percent heifers and 6
percent feeder bulls with 51 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and
bulls totaled 25 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold 
steady to 1.00 lower.
