Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 7/25/2017

Receipts:  902    Week Ago:  646    Year Ago:  0


   Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold mostly steady however 
a weak undertone was noted on 600-700 lb steers. Yearlings made up most
of the sale and yearling heifers saw the best demand as several consignments
of heifers sold right along with the steers. Cattle futures have started the week with significant losses to end up where they were before the recent rally. 
Demand was moderate to good with a light supply. A rain would be a welcome sight
in the area after last week’s scorching heat. The feeder offering was made up of 
near 44 percent steers and bulls and 56 percent heifers with 72 percent over 600
lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 10 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold steady. Slaughter bulls sold 2.00-3.00 lower.
