1820 - Douglas County Livestock Auction - Ava, MO
Market information provided by USDA
30 Jun '22
Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers under 650 lbs. sold 3.00 to 7.00 higher. Not enough feeder over 650 lbs. at the previous sale for a good comparison but a sharply higher undertone was evident. Slaughter cows and bulls sold mostly steady. The supply was heavy with many of the cattle showing signs of the extreme heat and dryness that has settled in over the acorn belt. Several producers mentioned they had hauled either calves or cows to town because grass was quickly disappearing and what grass is still present does hold much as far as nutrition goes. Demand was moderate to good, however buyers are now becoming aware some calves are nearing the point they aren't just thin in the way they will quickly gain pounds, but are starting to see some that are stressed to the point it will take a little effort to turn them back around.
