Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 02/21/2019
 
Receipts:  6463    Last Week:  8382    Year Ago:  6617  
 
   Compared to last week:  Feeder steers 2.00 to 5.00 lower, except
600-650 lbs 2.00 to 3.00 higher.  Feeder heifers under 750 lbs 2.00
to 5.00 lower, over 750 lbs steady to 2.00 lower.  Demand just moderate
this week.  There were plenty of high quality steers and heifers on
offer, including many Hereford influenced.  Cattle feeders were on the
defensive after another snowstorm early in the week, with more on the
way.  Much colder than normal temps for the last 30 days coupled with
snow and high winds has made for a really tough winter.  Cattle
performance has suffered which has increased costs of gain.  Flesh
condition was uneven, mostly light to moderate but there were some
consignments on higher energy rations in moderate plus flesh.  Lower CME
Live and Feeder Cattle futures also added pressure to the market.
62 percent were steers; 38 percent heifers. 90 percent weighing over 600
lbs.  Expecting 8000 feeder cattle next week, starting at 8:00 am.
