Thursday, October 17, 2013

Receipts:  2034    Last Week:  2342    Year Ago:  1390

   Compared to last week, steer and heifer calves unevenly steady.  Not enough
yearlings for a good market test.  Not enough Holsteins last week for a good
market comparison, compared to the last good test two weeks ago, Holsteins under
650 lbs 2.00 to 6.00 higher, over 650 lbs 5.00 to 8.00 higher.  Quality and
condition of calves not as desirable for buyers as last week.  However, weigh-
ups on Holsteins favored the buyers side.  Demand moderate to good, supply
moderate.  The bulk of the offering was calves and Holsteins with a limited test
of yearlings.  The feeder supply included 16 percent steers, 44 percent 
Holsteins, 25 percent heifers, 15 percent bulls, with 40 percent over 600 lbs.
