Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 03/14/2017
 
Receipts:  1815    Week Ago:  2874    Year Ago:  1822
    
   Compared to last week, steers under 750 lbs sold steady to 5.00 higher,
750-850 lbs mostly 7.00 higher. Heifers under 750 lbs steady to 4.00 higher,
750-800 lbs 5.00-7.00 higher. Buyers have gained some confidence in the market
following the higher cash trade for fed cattle and boxed beef showing positive
gains, however the winter storm in the northeastern part of the country has 
affected the board negatively while Western Missouri saw a rare snow fall this
morning. Supply was moderate. Demand was good. The feeder offering consisted of
near 56 percent steers and bulls, 41 percent heifers and 3 percent Holsteins
with 58 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 12 percent of the offering.
Slaughter cows and bulls sold steady to 1.00 higher.
