Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 4/4/2017

Receipts:  1130    Week Ago:  1953    Year Ago:  1771

   Compared to last week, a light test of steers and heifers sold near steady,
except steer calves under 500 lbs selling with a lower undertone. A large
majority of the feeders were new crop calves and with the cool wet conditions
buyers were somewhat reluctant to purchase new cattle to take home and put in
the mud which no doubt is what restricted cattle from making it to town. Supply
was light and demand was moderate. The feeder offering consisted of near 51
percent steers and bulls, 49 percent heifers with 28 percent over 600 lbs. Cows
and bulls totaled 20 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows and bulls sold
firm.
