Springfield Livestock Marketing Center : Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 05/16/2012

Thursday, May 17, 2012

Receipts:  1808    Week Ago:  1482    Year Ago:  1489
 
   Compared to last week, steer calves sold steady to 3.00 lower while heifer 
calves were fully 7.00-10.00 higher in active trading.  All weights of Holstein 
steers were 2.00-4.00 higher and the balance of the colored yearling steers and 
heifers sold mostly steady.  There was a wide price gap on heifer calves right 
at 600 lbs and a definite drop-off in demand for those weighing over 600 lbs.  
Bidding was aggressive for true yearling cattle and buyers were not particular 
as to quality.  Supply included 40 percent steers, 41 percent heifers, 10
percent Holstein steers, and 9 percent feeder bulls.  Near 41 percent weighed 
over 600 lbs.
