Market Notes

Compared to last week, steers traded steady to 5.00 higher and heifers sold mixed as some hard weaned calves under 450 lbs sold with a higher undertone, mid weight 450-700 lb heifers steady but a load of yearlings weighing 723 lbs sold 8.00 higher than the most recent comparable sale three weeks ago. A light supply was offered, in part due to the heat, but two loads of yearlings and some groups of weaned calves saw very good demand. Trade was active and cattle had little trouble finding a new home with the market on the up and up as overall numbers of cattle tighten and the scare of record high feed costs has moderated. Boxed beef has gained momentum and packers are again seeing large profit margins. Slaughter cows and bulls sold steady to 2.00 lower.

Supply included: 87% Feeder Cattle (58% Steers, 41% Heifers, 1% Bulls); 10% Slaughter Cattle (86% Cows, 14% Bulls); 2% Replacement Cattle (50% Stock Cows, 50% Bred Cows). Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 63%.
