Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 3/27/2018

Receipts:  1375    Week Ago:  1211    Year Ago:  1953

   Compared to last week, based on light comparisons steers and heifers sold
3.00-10.00 lower. A light supply of feeders was offered and included both
fleshy calves and some yearlings with a few consignments of thin heifers that
will go to grass and those sold with the best demand. On the other hand, several 
of the yearling cattle were carrying quite a bit of flesh and were discounted
accordingly. Overall, demand was light to moderate as the market tries to
establish a bottom with large numbers of cattle on feed weighing on the market.
Supply was moderate. The feeder offering was made up of near 54 percent steers
and bulls and 46 percent heifers with 56 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls
totaled 17 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold 1.00 to 3.00 higher.
