Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 5/1/2018

Receipts:  2818    Week Ago:  2862    Year Ago:  1113

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers under 700 lbs sold mostly 2.00-
7.00 lower despite a few weight ranges trading steady, mainly 400-450 lb heifers
and 450-500 lb steers. There were too few comparable sales of heavier weights
for an accurate price trend but the undertone was lower. A nice run of mostly
400-650 lb calves was offered with the most demand for 550-625 lb steers and
400-550 lb heifers. All other weights sold mostly with moderate demand. Losses
on the board in recent days are to blame for the drop in prices with supply and
demand concerns this summer. The feeder offering was made up of near 53 percent
steers and bulls and 47 percent heifers with 34 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and
bulls totaled 16 percent of the offering.
