Feeder Cattle Narrative Report for 04/13/2015
Actual Receipts: 8,024 Last Monday: 5,769 Year Ago Monday: 5,714
Compared to last week: Feeder steers and heifers mostly steady to 5.00 lower,
with the exception of 600-700 lb steers suitable for summer grazing programs
which traded 2.00 to 4.00 higher. Steer and heifer calves are mostly steady on
a light test. According to the US Drought Monitor, approximately 40 percent of
Oklahoma is listed in the extreme or exceptional drought categories. The severe
drought areas are located in the Western portions of the state. Some drought
relief is in store this week, as a persistent southerly flow will continue to
push up from Gulf Coast which is expected to bring an average of 1 to 2 inches
of precipitation across the state over the next week. Supply included 71
percent over 600 lbs and 34 percent heifers.
