Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 03/08/2018
 
Receipts:  2245    Last Week:  5366    Year Ago:  6751
 
   Compared to last week:  Steers and heifers sold mostly
steady in much lighter offerings than last week.  Demand was
good for today's offering of attractive quality cattle in 
mostly moderate flesh condition.  Overall, cattle were clean
and open haired with just a couple consignments carrying tag.
Many cancellations today due to the winter storm that moved
across much of the state in the first half of the week.  Cattle
flagged as "Calves" were off the cow this morning.  CME Futures
closed sharply lower, with Live Cattle contracts through August
2018 1.20 to 1.55 lower.  Feeder cattle were 57 percent steers, 
43 percent heifers; 96 percent weighing over 600 lbs.  Sale next
Thursday March 15th, with 6,000 head expected.
