Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 2/27/2018

Receipts:  1512    Week Ago:  3190    Year Ago:  2591

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold mostly steady with spots up to 6.00
higher except for 750-850 lb steers trading 4.00 lower. A light to moderate
supply was offered as muddy lot conditions discouraged most producers from
moving their stock. Demand was moderate to good for a quality run of cattle,
however weigh ups were mostly average as the majority of feeders were in
moderate to moderate plus flesh conditions and some cattle came through the ring
carrying some mud. Demand was best for cattle suitable for grazing. The feeder
offering was made up of near 58 percent steers and bulls and 42 percent heifers
with 64 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 17 percent of the offering.
Slaughter cows sold firm to 2.00 higher.
