Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 3/5/2016

Receipts:  1771    Week Ago:  1639    Year Ago:  1634

   Compared to last week, steers under 600 lbs sold 2.00 to 10.00
lower and a few comparable sales of heavier weight steers had a
steady undertone. Heifer calves under 500 lbs sold 6.00-10.00 lower
with spots 15.00-17.00 lower on 400-450 lb heifers, heavier weights
sold mostly steady to 5.00 lower with a few instances 5.00 higher.
Similar to last week, the run of feeders was mainly un-weaned fleshier
type calves. Combine that with the fact that live and feeder cattle
futures traded lower again today it left buyers hesitant in this
volatile cattle market. Demand light to moderate with a light to
moderate supply, although a few packages of weaned grass cattle and
some yearlings were met with good demand. Near 58 percent steers and
bulls and 42 percent heifers with 30 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and
bulls were 13 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows were 2.00-3.00
lower.
