Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 03/26/2018
 
Receipts:  460    Last Week:  1325    Year Ago:  461


   Compared to last week, few comparisons could be made as the type and kind was
very different from last week’s bigger drafts of yearlings. A good portion of
the offering were un-weaned fall born calves and several consignments hadn’t made
it through a chute yet. However, the overall direction of the market lately has 
clearly been lower as nearby live and feeder cattle contracts have seen
substantial losses as there is a concern that too much beef is going to enter
the market shortly. Supply and demand were light to moderate. The feeder
offering included 59 percent steers and bulls and 41 percent heifers with
34 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 18 percent of the total
offering.
