Weighted Average Summary for 4 Texas Auctions - 9/29/2014 thru 10/03/2014



Market: Amarillo Livestock Auction, TX                                     

Market: Cattleman's Livestock Commission Co., TX                           

Market: San Angelo Auctions, TX                                            

Market: Tulia, TX                                                          



Receipts: 5,544        Last Week 4,021        Last Year 2,134              



Compared to last week: Feeder steers and heifers sold mostly firm to 7.00 

higher and instances as much as 14.00 higher at Tulia as the week 

progressed.  Trade activity was active on very good demand especially 

towards the end of the week as the feeder and live cattle CME board 

continued to climb, combined with lower corn prices which was the hot 

topic of the auction barns and left producers wondering where the top of 

the market will be.  Wheat pastures are in good condition from recent 

rains and buyers were eager to buy calves to turn out; however, some have 

had to spray for grasshoppers and army worms.  The feeder supply included 

28 percent heifers and approximately 64 percent of the runs weighed over 

600 lbs.
