Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 4/24/2018

Receipts:  2862    Week Ago:  1721    Year Ago:  2297

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold mostly 4.00-5.00 higher. A
quality set of both calves and yearlings was offered and demand was good for a
moderate supply. Buyers were optimistic and pushed prices following an
unexpected higher fat cattle trade last week and a neutral Cattle on Feed
report. Also, a few additional buyers provided some added support to the market
as we finally have some warm weather and the grass is growing. Buyers werenÂ’t
too picky about whether or not the calves were weaned as long as they were good
quality and not overly fleshy. The feeder offering was made up of near 56
percent steers and bulls and 44 percent heifers with 53 percent over 600 lbs.
Cows and bulls totaled 11 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows and bulls 
traded 3.00-5.00 lower.
