Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 8/28/2018

Receipts:  1455    Week Ago:  1555    Year Ago:  1331

   Compared to last week, based on a lighter test of comparable kind,
steers and heifers sold steady except 500-625 lb steers not reaching
the top end of the price ranges seen last week. Demand was moderate to good
for both yearlings and calves on a moderate supply. With the temperatures
still steady, the higher quality calves straight off the cow sold with small
discounts to the weaned calves as demand is good for grazing cattle. The
feeder offering was made up of near 60 percent steers and bulls and 40
percent heifers with 62 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 17
percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold 1.00-3.00 lower.
