Feeder Cattle Narrative Report for 05/04/2015
Actual Receipts: 10,303 Last Monday: 6,280 Year Ago Monday: 9,655
Compared to last week: Feeder steers and heifers are steady to 4.00
higher, except few 6 weight steers steady to 2.00 lower. Steer and heifer
calves not well tested but a sharply higher undertone is noted. Supply
includes several feeder cattle off of graze-out wheat in slightly thin to
fleshy conditions. Demand improved for feeder cattle as slaughter cattle
prices moved higher and cattle futures are making positive moves. Demand
remains moderate to good for thin fleshed cattle going to grass, however
some of these accounts are beginning to fill up. Nice spring rains last
week followed by warm weather has greened up much of the state. More rain
is expected for much of this week as well. Supply included 85 percent over
600 lbs and 35 percent heifers.
