Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 4/11/2017

Receipts:  1847    Week Ago:  1130    Year Ago:  1315

   Compared to a light test last week, steers under 550 lbs sold with a 
sharply higher undertone, 550-750 lbs mostly 5.00 higher. Heifers traded
3.00-5.00 higher. Several buyers were looking for cattle to graze and there
was a definite buzz ringside as the board soared higher and the warmer, dryer
weather has the grass popping. Supply was moderate and demand was very good
early, moderate late with mostly small consignments throughout the day. The
feeder offering consisted of near 54 percent steers and bulls, 46 percent
heifers with 40 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 15 percent of
the offering. Slaughter cows and bulls sold 2.00-4.00 lower.
