Feeder Cattle Narrative Report for 03/30/2015
Actual Receipts: 9,501 Last Monday: 6,206 Year Ago Monday: 8,316
Compared to last week: Feeder steers and heifers mostly steady. Steer and
heifer calves firm to 3.00 higher on comparable sales. Rain and severe storms
came through last week, bringing some much needed rain to the Central and
Eastern portions of the state. However, very little rain was recorded in
Western Oklahoma where the US Drought Monitor shows the entire region in the
Severe to Exceptional drought categories. Receipts slightly higher than
expected this week, however some cattle may have been slated for next week but
shipped today instead because of the Easter holiday next weekend. The majority
of the heavy weight yearling cattle were carrying more flesh and fill than the
previous week. Supply included 77 percent over 600 lbs and 39 percent heifers.
