Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 02/28/2017
 
Receipts:  2591    Last Week:  2134    Year Ago:  1697
    
   Compared to last week, steers under 800 lbs sold 3.00-5.00 higher, while
a lighter test of steers over 800 lbs sold mostly steady. Heifers traded
steady to 3.00 higher. Trade was active and demand was good as the board has
closed with modest gains the last two days and the recent cattle on feed report
released didn’t include any surprises. However, the futures outlook for late
summer and falls live cattle contracts remains near 20.00 lower than current
levels. The lack of moisture is becoming the main conversation starter around
the countryside. Supply was moderate. The feeder offering consisted of near 59
percent steers and bulls and 41 percent heifers with 55 percent over 600 lbs.
Cows and bulls totaled 8 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold 2.00-4.00
higher. Slaughter bulls sold steady.
