Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 04/25/2016
 
Receipts:  653    Last Week:  951    Year Ago:  641
 
   Compared to last week, a lighter test of steer and heifer
calves weighing 350-550 lbs traded 5.00-10.00 lower with spots
15.00 lower. Heavier weights not tested. The severe losses of
last week have carried over and the cattle on feed report
released on Friday hasnít helped the feeder market any as
cattle on feed were reported as 1 percent higher and placements
were 5 percent higher. The run of feeders mostly weighed between
350-550 lbs and a majority were carrying some excess flesh whether
they had been weaned or not and there was very little interest in
these fleshier cattle. Demand light with a light to moderate
supply. Near 59 percent Steers and bulls, and 41 percent heifers
with 14 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls were 20 percent of
the offering. Slaughter cows sold steady to 2.00 higher.
