Market Notes

Compared to last week, steer calves weighing 450-500 lbs sold with a higher undertone on a light offering, with 500-550 lb steers selling steady to 2.00 higher on a light test, 550-750 lbs were not well tested with last week's limited offering and 800-900 lb yearlings on comparable weights and quality sold firm to 3.00 higher. Feeder heifers weighing 400-500 lbs sold steady with 500-600 lbs lightly tested and 650-725 lbs selling steady to 3.00 higher. Slaughter cows traded steady to 2.00 lower. The best demand was on eight pot loads of good quality yearling steers weighing from 765-1000 lbs all selling with good demand on and active market along with one pot load of 660 lb heifers. Last Friday's Cattle on Feed Report was friendly with Placements coming in at 97 percent, which was lower than expected help to support higher Feeder Cattle futures on Monday.

Supply included: 89% Feeder Cattle (71% Steers, 29% Heifers, 1% Bulls); 11% Slaughter Cattle (2% Steers, 83% Cows, 14% Bulls). Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 74%.
