Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 07/17/2017
 
Receipts:  1592    Last Week:  717    Year Ago:  2418

   Compared to last week:  Feeder steers and heifers too lightly tested
last week to offer a full, complete comparison with this week, higher
undertones evident for all weights and classes.  Good to very good
demand for this offering of yearling cattle, some were off grass but
majority were out of backgrounding yards.  The flesh condition was
attractive, even on the cattle that came out of yards.  Quality very
attractive throughout the sale.  Many buyers on the seats ready to
bid on yearlings, as there was one consignment of 300 very high quality,
one iron steers along with other good sized bunches.  The two front
months of the CME Live Cattle futures contracts were lower, but the back
months were posting gains during the auction.  83 percent of feeders over
600 lbs.  56 percent of feeder cattle were steers; 44 percent heifers.
Slaughter cows 2.00 higher, bulls steady compared to last Wed.  84
percent feeder cattle; balance slaughter cows and bulls.
