Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 7/17/2018

Receipts:  1859    Week Ago:  2601    Year Ago:  646

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers traded steady to 3.00 higher
except 650-700 lb heifers selling 8.00 higher. Demand was good to very good
for some reputation consignments of quality cattle. The cattle market
continues to outperform expectations and cow-calf producers are content
marketing their calves sooner than usual to survive the drought and/or
shortage of hay. However, the un-weaned cattle saw noticeable discounts. 
Supply was moderate and receipts continue to surpass year ago levels.
The feeder offering was made up of near 55 percent steers and bulls and 45
percent heifers with 40 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 15
percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold mostly 2.00 lower.
