Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 02/26/2018
 
Receipts:  503    Last Week:  1544    Year Ago:  378

   Compared to last week, a light supply of feeders traded with a steady
undertone despite a lower futures market the last several trading sessions.
Buyers still seem comfortable with purchasing cattle at these price levels and
demand was good. The recent rain has created plenty of mud and most producers
decided to keep their cattle at home. The feeder offering included 64 percent
steers and bulls and 36 percent heifers with 66 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and
bulls totaled 12 percent of the offering.
