Feeder Cattle Narrative Report for 02/23/2015
Actual Receipts: 3,999 Last Monday: 5,689 Year Ago Monday: 10,592
Compared to last week: Feeder steers traded mostly 2.00 to 7.00 lower.
Feeder heifers sharply lower on a light test. Not enough calves for a market
trend. Frigid temperatures and snow have moved into the state which has caused
many producers to hold off selling this week. Snow on the roads has hindered
travel especially in the western part of the state toward the feedlots. Buyers
demand for cattle with favorable flesh conditions remains very good. Supply
included 79 percent over 600 lbs. and 35 percent heifers.
