Wednesday, January 23, 2019

Receipts: 387 Two Weeks Ago: 722 Year Ago: 1160

Compared to two weeks ago, few comparisons available, but feeders traded with a lower undertone. The feeder offering consisted of 40 percent steers and bulls, 60 percent heifers, and 45 percent of the total feeder offering weighed over 600 lbs. Bitter cold weather has hit the area, freezing up the ground and making it a little easier to get into pastures. Slaughter cows mostly steady.
