Market Notes

Compared to last week, steer calves under 550 lbs traded 5.00-10.00 higher with heavier weights selling steady to firm. The heifers followed a similar but more impressive trend with those weighing 450-600 lbs selling a full 10.00-15.00 higher while the heavier weights sold steady. Demand was good to very good for the loads of yearlings and long-weaned home raised calves. Supply was moderate, affected by the recent winter storm and now the mud. The summer feeder cattle contracts are trading roughly $15.00-$20.00 higher than the March contract and grass buyers are getting aggressive in gathering their grazing cattle, resulting in a higher market for the calves under 600 lbs. Slaughter cows sold 6.00-8.00 higher.

Supply included: 88% Feeder Cattle (60% Steers, 36% Heifers, 3% Bulls); 9% Slaughter Cattle (92% Cows, 8% Bulls); 3% Replacement Cattle (30% Stock Cows, 70% Bred Cows). Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 65%.
