Market Notes

Compared to last week: Feeder steers mostly 2.00-3.00 lower. Feeder heifers steady to 3.00 lower. Demand moderate. Cattle futures fell this week after a bearish Cattle on Feed Report. Grain prices were not a friend to the feeder as Corn futures traded higher most all week. Steer calves sold 1.00-3.00 higher, except 3 weights 5.00 lower. Heifer calves steady to 2.00 lower, except 3 weights 2.00-3.00 higher. Demand improved for grass cattle as some rain did fall across the state. Western Oklahoma remained extremely limited though on moisture. Slaughter cows steady to 5.00 lower, least decline on Lean cows. Slaughter bulls sold 1.00 lower. Demand moderate to good as cow numbers remain relatively light despite the on going drought.
