Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 1/16/2018

Receipts:  1550    Week Ago:  3805    Year Ago:  1871

   Compared to last week, steers under 550 lbs and heifers weighing 500-600 lbs
sold 5.00-12.00 higher on very good demand with most of those cattle headed to
grass in the spring; other weights traded steady to 5.00 higher except steers
over 750 lbs 2.00 to 5.00 lower. A high quality offering of feeder cattle was
offered with most more attractive in their condition than last week. Several
bigger consignments made up a majority of the offering and demand was good. The
sale found support from the CME on Tuesday as cattle saw modest gains. Despite a
moderate offering the recent snow and extreme cold prevented a larger run of
cattle. The feeder offering was made up of near 58 percent steers and bulls and
42 percent heifers with 75 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 5
percent of the offering.
