Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 04/30/2018
 
Receipts:  3206    Last Week:  2930    Year Ago:  1986
 
   Compared to last week, 400-500 lb steer calves sold mostly steady to 
spots 3.00 lower on the 450-500 lb calves, 5 weight steers sold steady, 
600-650 lb steers traded steady to 5.00 higher with yearling steers over 
650 lbs and heifers weighing over 600 lbs had few comparisons on similar 
weights to have a good test with last week.  Heifer calves weighing 400-
450 lbs sold steady with 450-600 lbs selling mostly 3.00-6.00 lower.  
Demand was moderate to good on a heavy supply.  Heifer calves were not as 
attractive as last week with more calves unweaned/short weaned and 
carrying more flesh.  CME cattle futures had triple-digit losses to end 
the month of April as end of the month positioning was in order.  Last 
week’s fed cattle market remains a positive with live prices higher 
ranging from 124.00-126.00.  Slaughter cows accounted for near 10 percent 
of the total receipts.  Feeder supply consisted of 58 percent steers and 
bulls, 42 percent heifers and 43 percent weighing over 600 lbs.
