Kentucky Weekly Livestock Summary for 10 through 16 May, 2013

Receipts                This Week             Last Week         Last Year
                        20,217                22,275            17,321
 
Compared to last week:  Feeder Cattle and Calves were steady to 2.00 lower
with moderate demand.  Prices continuing to receive pressure from lower
futures in both the Live and Feeder Cattle contracts for nearby months,
and consecutive weeks of lower Fed Cattle prices.  Most of the seasonal 
demand for calves to turn out to pasture is behind us as temperatures
slowly increase to a level expected for this time of year. 

Slaughter Cows and Bulls 1.00-3.00 higher as warmer weather fuels the demand
for beef.  Historical prices for beef leaves many consumers trading down to 
ground beef to continue to enjoy their protein of choice.  Historic price 
levels in tandem with lower cow numbers helps push cull prices higher.

Supply:  Slaughter Cows 10 percent; Slaughter Bulls 3 percent; Feeder cattle 85 
percent.  In the feeder supply, Steers made up approximately 37 percent and  
Heifers approximately 43 percent.  Steers and Heifers over 600 lbs totaled  
approximately 49 percent.  Replacement cattle 2 percent.
