Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 04/17/2018
 
Receipts:  1721    Week Ago:  2519    Year Ago:  2055

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers under 650 lbs sold fully 5.00 to 
10.00 higher and heavier weights steady to 5.00 higher. Very active trade this 
week as futures and fat trade have both found some footing the last couple weeks, 
lending support to the cash feeder market. Demand was especially good for a pot 
load of heifers weighing in at 676 lbs, bringing just over 1000.00 per head when 
the bidding stopped. Lots of anhydrous and fertilizer buggies on the move as locals 
are taking advantage of a stretch of more typical spring weather. Supply moderate 
and demand moderate to good. Cows and bulls accounted for 19 percent of the total 
offering. The feeder supply consisted of 50 percent steers and bulls and 50 percent 
heifers; 45 percent of all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 lbs.
