Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 3/7/2017

Receipts:  2874    Week Ago:  2591    Year Ago:  2593

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold fully steady except for a
light test of heifer calves under 500 lbs selling 5.00-7.00 lower. Demand was
good for a quality run of feeder cattle. The little bit of rain the severe
storms brought last night greened the grass up in a hurry. Supply was moderate.
The feeder offering consisted of near 64 percent steers and bulls and 36 percent
heifers with 68 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 8 percent of the
offering. Slaughter cows and bulls sold steady to 2.00 higher.
