Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 03/22/2018
 
Receipts:  4659    Last Week:  6503    Year Ago:  6738
 
   Compared to last week:  Steers sold  mostly 1.00 to 6.00
lower.  Heifers 650-800 lbs 1.00 to 6.00 lower, 800-850 lbs
5.00 to 8.00 lower, 850-950 lbs 2.00 to 6.00 lower.  Demand
was moderate as cattle feeders are not keen to get new cattle
in as many yard conditions are very wet and muddy.  Flesh 
condition was moderate to moderate plus for the majority of
the offerings today.  Overall cattle were carrying some tag,
as the spring weather and recent moisture have degraded pen
conditions.  Several long strings and many load lots offered.
Cattle futures close with triple digit gains for the majority
of the contracts.  Feeder cattle were 56 percent steers, 
44 percent heifers; 96 percent weighing over 600 lbs.  Sale next
Thursday March 29th, with 4,500 head expected.
