Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 05/15/2017
 
Receipts:  2561    Week Ago:  3283    Year Ago:  3090
 
   Compared to last week, steer calves weighing 400-450 lbs sold steady to 5.00 
lower with 450-600 lb calves selling mostly 5.00-8.00 lower with spots 10.00 
lower on the 450 and 550 lb weight steers; 600-650 lb steers sold steady to 5.00 
lower with the 700-750 lb steers trading mostly steady.  Feeder heifers weighing 
400-450 lbs sold 8.00-12.00 lower, 450-550 lbs traded 2.00-6.00 lower with the 
550-600 lbs heifers selling mostly 2.00-3.00 lower, weights of heifers over 600 
lbs were not well tested with last week.  Demand was moderate to good with 
supply moderate to heavy.  A nice offering of calves weighing 400-600 lbs 
especially heifers weighing 500-600 lbs along with several lots and part/pot  
loads of 7 weight steers and heifers sold with good weighing conditions.  CME 
cattle futures had sharp losses on Monday as traders quickly backed away from 
the sharp gains last Friday.  Last week's fed cattle trade was mostly 6.00 
lower on live prices all putting some pressure on the feeder cattle market.  
Slaughter cows accounted for near 8 percent of the total receipts.  Feeder 
supply consisted of 53 percent steers and bulls, 47 percent heifers and near 35 
percent weighing over 600 lbs.
