Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 6/12/2018

Receipts:  2533    Week Ago:  3822    Year Ago:  1769

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold 2.00-6.00 higher and
demand was good, particularly for steers with a moderate to heavy supply.
Overall the quality of the cattle was attractive and most of the calves were
weaned. Consumer demand for beef remains good and is lending support to the
local feeder market. A shower Monday night brought some much needed moisture
to the area to revive plant growth. The feeder offering was made up of near
54 percent steers and bulls and 46 percent heifers with 49 percent over 600
lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 12 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold
2.00-3.00 higher.
