Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 12/04/2017
 
Receipts:  2854    Week Ago:  2514    Year Ago:  2606
 
   Compared to last week, steer calves weighing 450-550 lbs sold mostly steady 
to firm with 550-600 lbs steers selling steady to 4.00 lower, 600-800 lb steers 
traded steady with two pot loads of 8 weight steers selling mostly 5.00 lower on 
comparable sales.  Feeder heifers weighing 400-450 lbs sold steady, with 450-700 
lbs selling mostly 2.00-5.00 lower.  Demand was moderate to good with supply 
moderate to heavy.  Best demand was on good quality weaned calves with still 
plenty of calves not weaned, short weaned and carrying flesh had buyers 
approaching these calves with more caution.  Feeder cattle market is getting 
some mixed signals from higher fed cattle market and last week's sharp losses on 
the CME that spilled over into Monday's lower futures.  Slaughter cows accounted 
for near 8 percent of the total receipts.  Feeder cattle consisted of 67 percent 
steers and bulls, 33 percent heifers and 46 percent weighing over 600 lbs.
