Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 12/11/2018
 
Receipts:  3351    Last Week:  4031    Year Ago:  2869

   Compared to last week, steers under 700 lbs sold 5.00-12.00 higher to
gain back last week’s losses and 700-800 lb steers sold with a steady to
firm undertone. A few loads of 800-900 lb steers sold steady with the last
comparable sales a month ago. Heifers traded 2.00-6.00 higher. The
improvement in the weather and the gains cattle saw on the CME Tuesday were
the contributing factors for a higher market with more feeders interested
taking on new cattle. Demand was good, particularly for cattle light enough
to graze. A heavy supply was offered and the majority of cattle were in more
attractive condition than the last several weeks. The feeder offering was
made up of near 61 percent steers and bulls and 39 percent heifers with 58
percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 14 percent of the offering.

Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 12/11/2018
 
Receipts:  1960    Last Week:  1916    Year Ago:  1121
 
   Compared to last Tuesday, feeder steers under 550 lbs 5.00-8.00 higher, over
550 lbs firm to 3.00 higher. Feeder heifers under 550 lbs 4.00-12.00 higher, 
over 550 lbs 1.00-3.00 higher. Slaughter cows steady to 2.00 lower. Demand 
good. Supply heavy. Near 8 percent of the offering were cows and 48 percent of
the feeders were over 600 lbs. Feeder supply approximately 55 percent steers and
bulls and 45 percent heifers. Much different feel to the feeder trade this week, 
especially in the lighter cattle, with improved weather, higher Tuesday futures 
and a few more takers out to get in on the last big receipts of 2018. The market
may have gotten a bit of a psychological boost as well after last week’s massive
slaughter delivered a reminder of how demand is continuing to chew through 
market ready cattle.

 ***Special Cow Sale - Saturday, December 15 - Noon****

 Compared to last week, steer calves under 600 lbs traded 6.00-12.00 higher
 while heifer calves under 600 lbs traded unevenly steady.  Heavier weight steer
 and heifer calves traded 3.00-6.00 higher.  Yearlings were not well tested
 however undertones were steady to firm.  Demand was good on a moderate supply.
 Last week's beef slaughter was the largest single week since September 2003.
 The 667,000 head harvest easily set a new high for the year and decade.  This
 couldn't have come at a better time as a large number of calves have been sold
 in recent weeks, including over 14,000 head through ORS over an 8 day span.
 The weighted average for steers this week was 145.72,which was 3.24 higher
 than last week.  The heifer weighted average was 128.29 which was 1.00 higher
 than a week ago.  Next week will be the last opportunity to sale at Ozarks
 Regional Stockyard for 2018.  The barn will be closed the weeks of Christmas
 and New Years and will ring in the New Year with a Special Pre-Vac Feeder
 Auction on Friday, January 4, 2019.  Feeder cattle supply included 49 percent
 Steers, 46 percent Heifers, and  5 percent Bulls. Feeder cattle supply over
 600 lbs was 35 percent.

Palmyra - F and T Livestock Auction
Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 12/03/2018

Receipts:  1383    2 Weeks Ago:  1121    Year Ago:  1744

   Compared to the auction from two weeks ago, feeder steers and
heifers traded 3.00-10.00 lower.  Slaughter cows steady compared to
last week.  A rather tough day at the market with the continued lousy 
weather conditions throughout the Midwest pressuring feeder cattle
prices.  Demand light to moderate and supply moderate.  Cows and bulls
accounted for 13 percent of the run and feeders 87 percent.  In the
feeder supply, steers and bulls made up approximately 66 percent of the
run; heifers 34 percent; steers and heifers over 600 lbs totaled around
59 percent.
