Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 03/05/2018
 
Receipts:  775    Last Week:  503    Year Ago:  1260

   Compared to last week, based on limited comparisons to last week’s light
supply steers traded with a firm undertone and heifers sold with a lower
undertone on lighter demand. Overall demand was moderate for a mix of both
yearlings and new crop calves with most selling in smaller packages. As we have
seen for several weeks now, demand was best for grazing cattle. The feeder
offering included 67 percent steers and bulls and 33 percent heifers with 53
percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 12 percent of the offering.
