Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 3/22/2016


Receipts:  2069    Week Ago:  1822    Year Ago:  1515

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers traded mostly 3.00-10.00
lower with spots 11.00-15.00 lower on 600-700 lb heifers. Some of the
thinner fleshed grazing cattle traded near steady. Live and feeder cattle
trading lower on the board along with boxed beef losing ground has been a
contributing factor the last several days. Demand moderate with a moderate
supply. Near 59 percent steers and bulls and 41 percent heifers with 47
percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls were 12 percent of the offering.
Slaughter cows were weak to 2.00 lower.
