Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 2/20/2018

Receipts:  3190    Week Ago:  3752    Year Ago:  2134

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold mostly steady however a 
few spots were uneven. On increased demand, with most of the cattle more
attractive in their condition, 700-800 lb steers traded 5.00-7.00 higher
following last week’s weaker market for that weight range. On the flip side 500-
550 lb heifers sold 5.00-8.00 lower. The quality ran deep into the sale and
demand was good despite the inclement weather with icy roads and muddy lot
conditions. The feeder offering was made up of near 68 percent steers and bulls
and 32 percent heifers with 71 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 5
percent of the offering. Slaughter cows traded mostly steady.
