Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 5/9/2017

Receipts:  3762    Week Ago:  1113    Year Ago:  1719

   Compared to a light test from last week, steers and heifers over 500 lbs
sold steady to 5.00 higher. Calves under 500 lbs sold with a higher undertone.
Demand was good for a heavy supply of feeders as producers were eager to get
cattle marketed while itÂ’s dry and the recent rise in prices has made selling
cattle more attractive. However, futures contracts for cattle have been a roller
coaster ride since the middle of last week. The feeder offering was made up of
near 56 percent steers and bulls and 44 percent heifers with 44 percent over 600 
lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 14 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold
mostly steady. Slaughter bulls sold 2.00-3.00 higher.
