Total Run: 10,912

Market Notes

Compared to last week: Feeder steers 3.00 to 7.00 lower, instances to 10.00 lower. Feeder heifers 3.00 to 4.00 lower. Moderate demand for steers and heifers as another winter storm moving across cattle feeding country as put pressure back on the market. Cattle feeders are facing much adversity as they deal with the wet winter that has been experienced this year. Costs of gain have risen dramatically as feed efficiency has dropped, most markedly on those heavy market ready cattle. Some slaughter plants had to cancel shifts due to the storm, and others had trouble getting cattle shipped in which is keeping the pressure on cattle feeders to sell cattle and not hold out for higher money.

Supply included: 100% Feeder Cattle (63% Steers, 37% Heifers). Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 50%.
