Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 02/26/2018
 
Receipts:  1271    Last Week:  3241    Year Ago:  2427
 
   Compared to last week's heavy volume this week's much lighter receipts 
and overall quality and numbers especially on steer calves under 550 lbs 
and heifers under 600 lbs were no match for last week’s large offering of 
top quality calves.  A light test of 550-600 lb steers sold fully steady 
to firm with the best test on 650-750 lb steers trading with very good 
demand selling 8.00-10.00 higher, spots 12.00 higher on the 650-700 lb 
steers, yearlings over 750 lbs were not well tested.  Feeder heifers 
weighing 600-750 lbs sold steady to firm with all other weights lightly 
tested.  Demand was good with supply light.  The best feeder demand is 
for the 6 weight and 700-750 lb stockers (steers) that need no warming up 
for grass and will come off pastures as heavy feeders ready for the 
feedlot.  Slaughter cows accounted for near 10 percent of the total 
receipts.  Feeder supply consisted of 52 percent steers, 48 percent 
heifers and near 63 percent weighing over 600 lbs.
