Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 5/3/2016


Receipts:  1631    Week Ago:  2549    Year Ago:  2607

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers traded mostly 
steady to 6.00 lower except for a few drafts of high quality
seven weight steers selling 3.00 to 4.00 higher. Overall
quality not as attractive as last week and a good percentage
of the cattle were discounted for carrying too much flesh.
Most in this area have had ample moisture lately and many
are looking forward to forecasted higher temperatures later
in the week to get the grass and corn going and dry out fields
to plant beans. Demand was moderate with a moderate supply.
Near 58 percent steers and bulls and 42 percent heifers with
40 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls were 19 percent of
the offering. Slaughter cows sold steady.
