Market Notes

Compared to last week: Steers under 600 lbs sold 5.00 to 9.00 higher; over 600 lbs sold steady to 2.00 lower. Heifers under 550 lbs sold 5.00 to 7.00 higher; over 550 lbs sold steady to 3.00 lower. Demand ranged from moderate to very good. Demand best for those calves suitable for grazing or backgrounding as weakness in the CME Cattle Complex limited the upside on the heavier weight cattle. Cost of gains are still still a concern with corn around the 6.00 mark at country elevators in many areas of the state. On Wednesday a light test of live and dressed trades of negotiated cash fed cattle sold from 135.00-137.00, mostly 1.00-3.00 lower at 137.00, and dressed purchases traded 2.00 lower at 218.00.

Supply included: 95% Feeder Cattle (60% Steers, 40% Heifers, 0% Bulls); 3% Slaughter Cattle (100% Cows); 2% Replacement Cattle (95% Bred Cows, 5% Bred Heifers). Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 73%.
