Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 03/05/2018
 
Receipts:  2648    Last Week:  1271    Year Ago:  1964
 
   Compared to last week's light volume of steer calves under 550 lbs and 
heifers under 500 lbs were not well tested but traded with a steady to 
firm undertone, feeder steers weighing 550-600 lbs sold mostly 5.00-6.00 
higher, with 600-750 lbs trading steady on comparable weights and over 
750 lbs were not well tested.  Feeder heifers weighing 500-550 lbs sold 
4.00-5.00 higher and 550-700 lbs sold fully steady to firm.  Demand was 
good on a moderate to heavy offering of good quality calves weighing 450-
650 lbs and yearling steers weighing 650-750 lbs.  CME cattle futures had 
solid gains finding buyer support after last week's losses.  Slaughter 
cows accounted for near 8 percent of the total receipts.  Feeder cattle 
consisted of 66 percent steers, 34 percent heifers and 59 percent 
weighing over 600 lbs.
