Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 04/23/2018
 
Receipts:  2930    Last Week:  2852    Year Ago:  3202
 
   Compared to last week, steer calves weighing 400-500 lbs sold 3.00-
8.00 higher, 500-650 lb steer calves sold steady to firm, 700-900 lb 
yearling steers traded 4.00-7.00 higher with yearlings over 900 lbs not 
tested but selling with a higher undertone.  Feeder heifers traded mostly 
steady with spots 2.00 lower on the 500-550 lb heifers.  Demand was good 
on a moderate to heavy supply.  Bulk of the sales were calves weighing 
400-650 lbs with 5 pot loads of yearling steers weighing 875-925 lbs all 
selling with good demand.  CME cattle futures posted solid triple-digit 
gains to start the week.  Friday's COF report showed no surprises as 
estimates were pretty much spot on.  The lack of any bearish news from 
the report and improved fed cattle prices last week helped to improve 
feeder cattle market.  Slaughter cows accounted for 12 percent of the
otal receipts.  Feeder supply included 61 percent steers, 7 percent 
bulls, 32 percent heifers and near 42 percent weighing over 600 lbs.
