Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 05/15/2018
 
Receipts:  2505    Last Week:  2606    Year Ago:  2425
    
   Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold mostly 2.00-7.00 lower with
the exception being 550-625 lb steers trading firm to 3.00 higher and selling 
with the best demand. Overall, demand was moderate to light, particularly light
for 550-700 lb heifers un-weaned or carrying much flesh. A lower fat cattle
trade and sharp losses on the board the last couple days left buyers cautious
about their purchases as the market is bracing for what many analysts believe
will be an abundance of market ready cattle this summer. The feeder offering was
made up of near 51 percent steers and bulls and 49 percent heifers with 48
percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 12 percent of the offering. Supply
was moderate. Slaughter cows sold steady to 2.00 lower.
