Market Notes

Compared to last week: Feeder steers and heifers traded mostly firm to 5.00 higher. Not enough comparable sales on steer or heifer calves for a market trend but a sharply higher undertone was noted. Slaughter cows and bulls traded steady to 3.00 higher. Trading activity was active on good buyer demand. Quality was very attractive with several large loads of yearlings and smaller packages of calves with good weigh ups on offer. Cooler temperatures coupled with good chances of rain are in the forecast through the weekend. Which will bring some additional relief to dryland crops and pastures.

Supply included: 63% Feeder Cattle (68% Steers, 28% Heifers, 4% Bulls); 37% Slaughter Cattle (97% Cows, 3% Bulls). Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 73%.
