Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 8/14/2018

Receipts:  2080    Week Ago:  1811    Year Ago:  756


   Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold steady to 5.00 higher,
with the exception being 650-700 lb heifers trading 6.00-8.00 higher. Some
of the yearlings this week were carrying more flesh, but some thin cattle
were still available for buyers to push top prices and put together loads. 
Demand was mostly good for a moderate supply, moderate later in the sale.
Strong fundamentals and a mostly steady market for several months continue
to bring cattle to town along with the drought. The feeder offering was made
up of near 58 percent steers and bulls and 42 percent heifers with 66
percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 15 percent of the offering.
Slaughter cows sold steady to 1.00 lower.
