Feeder Cattle Narrative Report for 03/23/2015
Actual receipts: 6,206 Last Monday: 10,947 Year Ago Monday: 7,997
Compared to last week: Feeder steers and heifers traded 4.00 to 8.00 higher,
with instances of 10.00 to 12.00 higher on 650-750 lb heifers. Steer and heifer
calves mostly 1.00 to 2.00 higher on a light test. The CME Feeder and Live
Cattle contracts recognized large gains last week, and continued upward Monday
with the March Feeder cattle contract closing up 2.10 and April Live cattle
closing up the limit. Additionally, fat cattle traded 2.00 to 2.50 higher in
the country last week. This along with rain and warm weather in the state over
the weekend has boosted the wheat crop and summer pastures which has resulted in
very good buyer demand. Supply included 75 percent over 600 lbs and 39 percent
heifers.
