Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 02/08/2019
 
Receipts:  1073    Two Weeks ago:  2097    Year Ago:  1439
 
   Compared to the last special two weeks ago, the best test on feeder 
steers were weighing 550-650 lbs sold fully steady, with 650-750 lbs on a 
light test sold with a lower undertone as overall quality and numbers 
were much lower than two weeks ago.  Feeder heifers weighing 500-700 lbs 
sold with a lower undertone on a light test as they were not as 
attractive as two weeks ago, 700-750 lbs heifers had a nice offering but 
were not well tested.  Freezing rain over the last couple of days and 
icey side roads help curb receipts this week.  Slaughter cows accounted 
for near 10 percent of the total receipts and sold steady to firm.  
feeder cattle consisted of 49 percent steers, 51 percent heifers and 74 
percent weighing over 600 lbs.
