Market Notes

Compared to last week, feeder steers under 550 lbs were unevenly steady with some instances of 2.00 higher to 2.00 lower. Feeder steers over 550 lbs were mostly 5.00-7.00 higher with the heaviest test on steers weighing 550-700 lbs. Feeder heifers 550 lbs and under were unevenly steady with instances of 2.00-3.00 higher to 2.00-3.00 lower, and heifers over 550 lbs were mostly steady to 3.00 higher. Quality was mostly good and buyers showed the best interest in long-weaned (45+ days), preconditioned cattle. Offerings were heavy again this week despite the colder temperatures and significant rain throughout the region forecasted through the week, but the moisture is a welcome sight to producers. Slaughter cows were mostly steady to 2.00 lower, and slaughter bulls were mostly steady with moderate demand for slaughter classes.

Supply included: 87% Feeder Cattle (43% Steers, 41% Heifers, 16% Bulls); 12% Slaughter Cattle (91% Cows, 9% Bulls); 1% Replacement Cattle (6% Stock Cows, 88% Bred Cows, 6% Bred Heifers).
