Dickson Livestock Center, Dickson, TN: Weighted Average Report for Tuesday Dec 4, 2012

Thursday, December 6, 2012

Cattle Receipts:  713   Last week: 611       Last year: 679

According to the Federal-State Market News Service: Slaughter
cows and bulls steady. Steers/bulls unevenly steady to 10.00 lower.
Heifers under 500 lbs 4.00 to 8.00 lower, over 500 lbs steady to 4.00 
lower. 
Demand moderate at best with buyers selective for color, flesh
condition and frame size. Breed type and color may make all the 
difference in price received. Moisture is still limited for grazing 
areas in the West, not only is forage affected but more of a concern is 
livestock water. This has caused price swings in calf demand.
Yearling demand has been a bit more stable.
     
Slaughter cows 40 head; Bulls 8; Total feeders 665; Steers/bulls 485;
Heifers 180; Feeders over 600 lbs 326; Feeder and or replacement cows 0.
