Springfield, MO- Livestock Marketing Center: Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 8/22/12

Thursday, August 23, 2012

Receipts:  1503    Last Week:  1578    Year Ago:  1244

   Compared to last week, steer calves steady 4.00 higher, heifer calves steady
to 4.00 lower, Holsteins under 500 lbs 5.00 to 8.00 lower, over 500 lbs steady,
yearlings steady to 2.00 higher.  Demand moderate to good, supply moderate.
The weigh-up's were average to full.  Cattlemen are feeding hay, grain, cubes,
tubs, silage, corn stalks, straw, leaves or anything they can get their hands on
that will help them feed their herds.  But ponds are drying-up and resources for
stock water are limited.  Many are using drilled wells, but not everyone has
that option.  Some are hauling water to their cattle, but it is time consuming,
expensive and not practical for most producers.  The feeder supply included 27
percent steers, 24 percent Holsteins, 35 percent heifers, 14 percent bulls, with
30 percent over 600 lbs.
