Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 8/1/2017

Receipts:  962    Week Ago:  902    Year Ago:  896

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold steady to 5.00 higher. Cattle
futures had a strong day and are trying to recover from a slight downtrend after
the high placement number on the most recent Cattle on Feed Report. Demand was
moderate with a light to moderate supply. Torrential rains swept across West 
Central Missouri late last week which caused flash flooding and reports of up to 
7.00” weren’t uncommon. The feeder offering was made up of near 66 percent 
steers and bulls and 34 percent heifers with 70 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and 
bulls totaled 20 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows and bulls sold mostly
2.00 higher with several high dressing cows offered.
