Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 8/21/2018

Receipts:  1555    Week Ago:  2080    Year Ago:  739


   Compared to last week, steers traded 2.00-7.00 higher and heifers sold 
mostly steady. However, heifer calves under 525 lbs traded with a higher
undertone and 600-700 lb heifers didn’t see the extreme top end prices seen
last week with smaller groups offered in that weight range. Demand was good
for both calves and yearlings with a few additional buyers in the crowd.
Supply was moderate. The cooler weather and rain was a welcome sight and
will add to the forage available this fall. The feeder offering was made up
of near 58 percent steers and bulls and 42 percent heifers with 54 percent
over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 21 percent of the offering. Slaughter
cows sold 2.00-5.00 higher with the most advance on higher dressing cows.
