Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 4/10/2018

Receipts:  2519    Week Ago:  1310    Year Ago:  1847

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold steady to 5.00 higher on
mostly moderate demand. Several pot loads of yearlings made up a good portion of
the feeders as dryer weather has allowed for better movement of livestock and
the futures market has calmed down over the last week or so. Most of the cattle
were carrying some flesh whether long time yearlings or calves and buyers took
note, particularly on the plainer yearling heifers that sold on light demand.
Also, quite a few of the calves were un-weaned and/or bulls. The feeder offering
was made up of near 49 percent steers and bulls and 51 percent heifers with 52
percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 14 percent of the offering.
