Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Receipts:  1862     Last Week:  1501    Year Ago:  561       

   Compared to last week, feeder steers traded mostly steady to 2.00 higher 
across all weight ranges.  Heifers under 600 lbs traded mostly steady, while 
those over 600 lbs were unevenly steady.  Slaughter cows and bulls were too 
lightly tested to trend.  Trade activity and demand were moderate to good.  The 
bulk of today�s consignments were feeder cattle with a long wean and pre-
conditioning.  In feeder cattle, the run consisted of 60 percent steers, 1 
percent bulls and 39 percent heifers with 85 percent weighing over 600 pounds.  
The total run consisted of 98 percent feeder cattle, 1 percent bred stock and 
the balance in slaughter cows and bulls. The next available report will be 
February 21, 2018.
