Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 12/20/2017
 
Receipts:  1870    Last Week:  2869    Year Ago:  985

*** No sale next week, Merry Christmas. The next sale is Tue. Jan 2nd ***
    
   Compared to last week, steers sold fully steady and heifers sold mostly
steady except for spots 3.00 higher on calves and spots 3.00 lower on heifers
over 600 lbs. Demand was good to very good for all weights on an active market
which was not affected whatsoever by the lower feeder cattle futures on Tuesday.
Several buyers are staring to focus in on procuring those 300-525 lbs calves to
graze this upcoming spring and several loads of yearlings didn’t have any
trouble finding new homes at handsome prices. The feeder offering was made up of
near 77 percent steers and bulls and 23 percent heifers with 68 percent over 600
lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 15 percent of the offering.
