Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 02/14/2018
 
Receipts:  5874    Last Week:  7004    Year Ago:  8019
 
Compared to last week:  Feeder steers steady to 4.00 higher, feeder
heifers over 550 lbs mostly steady to instances of 2.00 lower under
550 lbs too lightly tested last week for comparison.  Good to very
good demand for all weights and classes.  Many long strings and full
loads of very attractive, high quality steers and heifers offered
this week.  Flesh condition ran more towards the heavy side than the
light side.  There were some light fleshed cattle but they were in the
minority, most carrying a moderate plus amount which caused wide price
spreads.  The weather has been cold but dry which has allowed cattle to
stay clean, comfortable and easily gaining.  The market was very active
throughout the sale, regardless of the flesh condition there were plenty
of buyers for all offerings as the overall quality was so attractive.
Higher futures contracts for both Live and Feeder Cattle helped to
support the feeder market at the auction.  Steers made up 58 percent of
the feeder supply,, heifers 42 percent, 91 percent over 600 lbs.
