Market Notes

Compared to last week: Feeder calves were scarcely tested this week thus no trend is available. Extremely cold temperatures were seen over the last couple days with temperatures reaching as cold as 35 below in some locations. Very few cattle are being marketed as a result. Weigh up cows sold on good to very good demand for very light offerings. Cold temperatures have slowed the volume of cows available to packers, which has them searching for offerings for immediate slaughter. Slaughter cow buyers pushed to own as much of the offering as possible, bidding on almost every cow in the offering. Slaughter cows were too lightly tested on boning and breaking cows to develop an accurate market trend, however higher undertones were noticed. Lean cows sold sharply higher with most sales 8.00-10.00 higher. Slaughter bulls were too lightly tested to develop an accurate market trend, higher undertones were noticed. Young age cows suitable to feed or rebreed were too lightly tested to trend, higher undertones were noticed. Many offerings were heifers which freshly lost calves. Feeding demand for these offerings was good as demand for feeder cattle continues to be strong.

Supply included: 12% Feeder Cattle (100% Bulls); 68% Slaughter Cattle (95% Cows, 5% Bulls); 20% Replacement Cattle (72% Stock Cows, 28% Bred Cows). Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 100%.
