Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 03/22/2019
 
Receipts:  5676    Three Weeks ago:  5480    Year Ago:  2100
 
No comparison made as last weeks sale was cancelled due to the weather
and the last feeder sale was three weeks ago. Moderate to good demand 
for todays sale with the most interest in the greener hay fed cattle 
suitable for grass. Flesh condition ranged from light fleshed hay fed 
cattle to more moderate fleshed backgrounded cattle. The recent
winter weather has kept most of the cattle greener than they normally 
would be this time off the year. Still having some weather related 
cancellations due to muddy road conditions in the area. A fairly active
market with mostly orderbuyers in the seats procuring cattle today. Cattle 
marked value added are enrolled in the NHTC program. Some of the 
cattle are starting to carry some tag due to muddy pen conditions 
around the country. Several long strings of one owner cattle offering 
multiple loads of one owner cattle, with lots of part loads and packages
in todays sale. Quality was attractive overall. 84 percent over 600 lbs. 50 
percent steers, 50  percent heifers. Next feeder sale will be Friday 
March 29th,expecting 7,000 or more high quality feeders and replacement 
heifers.
