Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 05/15/2017
 
Receipts:  603    Week Ago:  1043    Year Ago:  943
    
   Compared to last week, steers sold with a weak undertone and heifer calves
sold mostly steady. Volatility on future contracts and the lower cash market
for fed cattle has caused buyers to be more conservative with their purchases.
Demand was moderate with a light to moderate supply. The feeder offering was
made up of near 51 percent steers and bulls, 49 percent heifers with 20 percent
over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 16 percent of the offering.
