Market Notes

Compared to last week: Feeder steers and heifers steady to 5.00 lower. Steer and heifer calves lightly tested and unevenly steady. Another week of strong gains in corn prices continues to pressure feeder prices. Slaughter cattle prices sold on the weaker side as beef prices moved higher, however the main story on the slaughter cattle slide is the limited space at the packing plants. On a good note demand is good for beef. Rains fell across the state this past week, mostly in the south and the south east and this limited numbers at some sale barns. Slaughter cows and bulls sold steady to 4.00 lower. Many barns had an increased number of slaughter bulls this week.

Supply included: 88% Feeder Cattle (54% Steers, 0% Dairy Steers, 44% Heifers, 2% Bulls, 0% Dairy Heifers); 7% Slaughter Cattle (79% Cows, 21% Bulls); 5% Replacement Cattle (14% Stock Cows, 51% Bred Cows, 3% Bred Heifers, 32% Cow-Calf Pairs). Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 75%.
