Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 04/08/2019
 
Receipts:  3226    Last Week:  3430    Year Ago:  1638

   Compared to last week:  Feeder steers under 800 lbs 3.00 to 5.00
higher except 750-800 lbs 5.00 to 10.00 higher, over 800 lbs mostly
steady.  Feeder heifers under 700 lbs 3.00 to 7.00 higher, over 700 lbs
mostly steady with an instance to 3.00 higher on 850-900 lbs.  Good
demand for light fleshed steers under 800 lbs and heifers under 700 lbs,
moderate for heavier steers and heifers.  A nice offering of feeder 
cattle, many long strings with many full loads and multiple load lots.
Flesh condition ranged from light to heavy.  The market was very active
on cattle under 800 lbs, especially so on the strings of light fleshed
cattle.  Buyers continue to shy away from cattle carrying too much flesh
condition for their weight.  CME Feeder Cattle contracts advanced while
Apr Live Cattle remained under pressure but back months advanced.
Slaughter cows steady to 2.00 higher, bulls sold with a firm undertone.
87 percent feeder cattle were over 600 lbs. 64 percent of feeders were
steers; 36 percent heifers.  Feeder cattle made up 92 percent of the run,
balance slaughter cows and bulls.
