Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 12/07/2017
 
Receipts:  4227    Last Week:  4140    Year Ago:  6611
 
   Compared to last week:  Steer calves under 600 lbs not well compared,
600-650 lbs 2.00 to 3.00 lower, over 650 lbs 5.00 to 10.00 lower.  Heifer
calves under 600 lbs steady to 3.00 lower, over 600 lbs 4.00 to 8.00
lower.  Yearlings narrowly compared, steers steady to 3.00 lower, heifers
steady.  Good demand for yearlings, as supplies more limited, moderate to
good for calves with the best demand for those weaned calves that can go
right to feed.  The flesh of the yearlings was moderate to moderate plus,
and the market was active.  The calf offering was predominately weaned calves,
in moderate to moderate plus flesh.  The market was not as active this week
on calves as it was last week as the futures market has plunged lower.  With
the prospect of a summer fed cattle market in the 110.00-113.00 range and
current cash fed market at 117.00-118.00 cattle feeders had to buy cattle
lower this week.  57 percent were steers; 43 percent heifers.  83 percent
weighing over 600 lbs.  Next week, Dec 14, will be the BBQ sale expecting
7,000 head of feeder cattle starting at 8:30am.
