Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 08/28/2017
 
Receipts:  2306    Two Weeks Ago: 1498    Year Ago:  1591
 
   Compared to two weeks ago, steers calves under 500 lbs sold with a steady to 
weak undertone on a light test, steers calves weighing 500-550 lbs sold mostly 
5.00 lower, 550-600 lbs traded steady, 600-700 lbs sold 8.00-10.00 higher, 700-
800 lbs sold 2.00-5.00 higher with yearling steers over 800 lbs selling with a 
higher undertone on light comparisons.  Feeder heifers weighing 400-500 lbs sold 
with a steady to firm undertone, 500-600 lbs traded steady to 5.00 higher, 600-
650 lbs sold 8.00-10.00 higher, spots 12.00 higher and over 700 lbs were not 
well tested.  Monday's auction consisted of many good quality calves and 
yearlings with several part loads and pot loads of yearling steers all selling 
with good demand on a moderate supply.  CME cattle futures had triple-digit 
gains on Monday, boosted by Friday's COF report as placements came in at 103 
percent with most expectations at 106 percent, which was a bullish surprise 
instead of a bearish one.  Slaughter cows accounted for near 7 percent of the
total receipts.  Feeder supply consisted of 66 percent steers and bulls, 34 
percent heifers and 60 percent weighing over 600 lbs.
