Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 12/05/2018
 
Receipts:  1267    Last Week:  2927    Year Ago:  2188
 
   Compared to last Wednesday, feeder steers and heifers under 500 lbs steady
to 2.00 higher, over 500 lbs 4.00-8.00 lower. Slaughter cows 3.00-5.00 lower. 
Demand moderate. Supply moderate. Near 12 percent of the offering were cows and
27 percent of the feeders were over 600 lbs. Feeder supply approximately 53
percent steers and bulls and 47 percent heifers. The combination of large 
numbers of feeders moving recently along poor weather conditions in many areas
with mud and snow are dampening the appetite for additional purchases this week.
Although upside may be limited by where we are in the cattle cycle, fundamentals
still look ok with fed prices seeing some seasonal strength and beef demand 
remaining strong.
