Feeder Cattle Report for 9/13/2018

Receipts:  485    Week Ago:  856    Year Ago:  821

   Compared to last week, steers sold firm and heifers sold with a higher
undertone. The overall mood is very positive for the cattle sector with
cheap corn and the ability for buyers to pencil in feeders at higher fat
prices down the road. Demand was moderate to good for a light supply despite
several consignments of bulls and un-weaned calves. The feeder offering
consisted of 38 percent steers and bulls and 52 percent heifers with 39
percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 25 percent of the offering.
Slaughter cows sold steady to 1.00 lower.
