Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 01/23/2018
 
Receipts:  3274    Last Week:  1550    Year Ago:  3224
 
   
   Compared to last week, comparable kinds of steers and heifers traded mostly
steady to 3.00 higher with a few spots a touch weaker mostly due to cattle
carrying a little extra flesh than last week, mainly on 700-750 lb steers. Also,
with light comparisons 400-500 lb heifers traded with a higher undertone. The
quality was outstanding throughout the sale and basically all the cattle had
been backgrounded. With cheap corn, there doesnÂ’t seem to be a shortage of
spring born feeders weighing 600-800 lbs that have been fed well. Fed cattle
traded higher last week and futures have seen several days in the green creating
a positive attitude to the market. The feeder offering was made up of near 64
percent steers and bulls and 36 percent heifers with 69 percent over 600 lbs.
Cows and bulls totaled 8 percent of the offering.
