Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 12/12/2018
 
Receipts:  2049    Last Week:  1267    Year Ago:  828
 
   Compared to last Wednesday, feeder steers 5.00-8.00 higher. Feeder heifers
under 500 lbs 6.00-12.00 higher, over 500 lbs 3.00-6.00 higher. Slaughter cows
steady to 2.00 lower. Demand good. Supply heavy. Near 7 percent of the offering
were cows and 62 percent of the feeders were over 600 lbs. Feeder supply 
approximately 57 percent steers and bulls and 43 percent heifers. The feeder 
market is a new ball game this week after struggling under the weight of big
receipts and poor weather last week. Several factors are helping the market with
better weather, solid futures including a new April live cattle contract high
and the eminent dwindling of numbers for 2018.

 ***CLOSE***   Compared to last week, steer calves sold 4.00 to 8.00 higher,
 with the exception of the light 6-weight steers being 10.00 to 12.00 higher.
 Heifer calves 500-550 lbs sold 8.00 to 10.00 higher and heifers under 450 lbs
 were very limited comparison.  All other weights of heifers sold steady to
 5.00 higher. Demand moderate to good depending on condition and quality of the
 offering.    Bulk of supply calves weighing 450-700 lbs.  Warmer temperatures
 and little to no moisture in the immediate forecast is a welcome sight so
 farmers in the trade area can get harvest finished up before Christmas.
 Feeder cattle supply included 54 percent Steers, 0 percent Dairy Steers, 41
 percent Heifers, and  5 percent Bulls. Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was
 42 percent.

 Compared to last week, steers and heifers under 750 lbs sold 3.00-9.00 higher
 with the most advance on steer calves under 550 lbs and heifer weighing 350-
 450 lbs. Demand was good for a moderate supply. Some sunshine and dry weather
 along with positive market fundamentals helped turn the market around and put
 everyone in a better mood. Last weeks slaughter was the biggest in a long time
 and consumer demand remains strong. Slaughter cows sold steady to 2.00 lower.
 Feeder cattle supply included 59 percent Steers, 37 percent Heifers, and  4
 percent Bulls. Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 48 percent.
