Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 01/02/2018
 
Receipts:  1945    Last Week:  0    Year Ago:  3295

   Compared to the last reported sale two weeks ago, steers sold steady to
6.00 higher and heifers sold slightly uneven as calves under 600 lbs sold 2.00-
5.00 lower and heavier weights were mostly steady. A nice offering of feeders
was offered with the vast majority weaned out with a health program and leaning
toward the yearling side. Demand was very good for steers and moderate for
heifers, light for a few consignments of un-weaned calves. Feeder cattle futures
saw large gains on Tuesday which helped to boost the market. The extreme cold 
kept some cattle at home as producers fight just to get the basics done during
the day with engines staring hard and frozen waterers. The feeder offering was
made up of near 63 percent steers and bulls and 37 percent heifers with 65
percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 8 percent of the offering.
