Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 6/5/2018

Receipts:  3822    Week Ago:  0    Year Ago:  3579

   Compared to the last reported sale two weeks ago, steers and heifers
sold uneven from steady to 5.00 higher, some spots 5.00 lower. Overall, the 
quality and condition of the cattle wasnÂ’t as attractive with most in moderate 
flesh and many un-weaned. The calves straight off the cow saw noticeable 
discounts with the summer heat here. Demand was mostly moderate
despite being good for 400-650 lb steers, however most of the fleshier or
un-weaned heifers saw light demand. Hay season is in full swing and most of
the beans are up or in the ground. The feeder offering was made up of near 
53 percent steers and bulls and 47 percent heifers with 39 percent over 600 
lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 16 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold 
1.00 to 2.00 higher and slaughter bulls traded 5.00 higher.
