Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 6/5/2018

Receipts:  3822    Week Ago:  N/A    Year Ago:  3579


   Compared to the last reported sale two weeks ago, steers and heifers
sold uneven from steady to 5.00 higher to 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. Supply was heavy. The feeder offering was made 
up of near 57 percent steers and bulls and 43 percent heifers with 40 percent 
over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 10 percent of the offering.
