Market Notes

Compared to last week: Most early week sales were light as they were still dealing with last week's winter storm and conditions making it difficult to ship cattle. Demand extremely good for all classes as light numbers seemed not enough to go around. Feeder steers sold 5.0010.00 higher. Feeder heifers were 2.00-8.00 higher. Steer calves 10.00-15.00 higher. Heifer calves traded 6.00-8.00 higher. Moisture from the snow was good but many reporting that much of the snow drifted and ended up in the ditch. Weatherman is promising good rains coming in for the middle of next week. Slaughter cattle prices held at 140.00 this week but Feeder futures for Spring and late Summer have advanced making lighter weight cattle appealing to buyers. Slaughter cows and bulls sold 5.00-10.00 higher and sold to very good demand. Lighter numbers also fueling demand for slaughter cows and bulls.

Supply included: 93% Feeder Cattle (49% Steers, 48% Heifers, 3% Bulls); 5% Slaughter Cattle (87% Cows, 13% Bulls); 1% Replacement Cattle (80% Bred Cows, 11% Bred Heifers, 9% Cow-Calf Pairs). Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 66%.
