Market Notes

Compared to last week: Feeder steers under 1000 lbs 5.00 to 10.00 higher, over 1000 lbs 2.00 to 5.00 higher. Feeder heifers 750-1000 lbs 4.00 to 8.00 higher, other weights not well compared. Very good demand for all weights of steers and heifers. Light offerings of feeder cattle this week, as is normal for this time of year. As the cash fed cattle topped at 149.00, few at 150.00, in Iowa this week cattle feeders have a renewed sense of optimism for the coming months of the fed cattle market. Slaughter cows steady to 2.00 higher, bulls steady.

Supply included: 91% Feeder Cattle (63% Steers, 37% Heifers); 9% Slaughter Cattle (44% Steers, 2% Dairy Steers, 39% Heifers, 13% Cows, 2% Bulls). Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 94%.
