Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 02/19/2018
 
Receipts:  1544    Last Week:  0    Year Ago:  654
    
   Compared to the last reported sale three weeks ago, steers and heifers traded
mostly 2.00-8.00 higher, however spots up to 15.00 higher on cattle under 550
lbs that are suitable for grazing. Demand was very good for all weights of
feeders as buyers were eager to own cattle. Fed cattle traded higher at 1.30 
last Friday and buyers seem optimistic about the market with some of the lighter
cattle worth as much or more than their heavier peers. Supply was heavy. The
feeder offering included 57 percent steers and bulls and 43 percent heifers with
81 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 9 percent of the offering.
