Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 04/18/2017
 
Receipts:  2055    Week Ago:  1847    Year Ago:  1924
    
   Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold steady to 3.00 higher
except 700-750 lb steers selling up to 5.00 higher. There are several  
positive factors in the cattle sector contributing to the increased value
of feeders. Demand for beef is good, feedlots are current and grazing season 
is here with ample moisture for most. Supply was moderate and demand was
very good for a quality run of feeders made up of near 57 percent steers and
bulls and 43 percent heifers with 46 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls
totaled 15 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows and bulls sold 1.00-3.00
lower.
