Market Notes

Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold steady to 6.00 higher with most of the gain on the steer side. Demand was good for a moderate supply that included some loads and packages of yearlings alongside several quality calves. Rain across the Midwest sent corn lower to start the week which in turn propelled cattle futures higher, finally bringing some positivity to the market after several weeks trending lower. Slaughter cows and bulls sold steady.

Supply included: 85% Feeder Cattle (56% Steers, 42% Heifers, 2% Bulls); 14% Slaughter Cattle (82% Cows, 18% Bulls); 2% Replacement Cattle (48% Stock Cows, 52% Bred Cows). Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 41%.
