Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 01/17/2019
 
Receipts:  7064    Last Week Ago:  6351    Year Ago:  8075  
 
   Compared to last week:  Feeder steers and heifers steady to 2.00
lower.  Demand mostly moderate.  A large offering of high quality
steers and heifers, flesh condition light to moderate plus.  Many
full loads allowing buyers to make full feedyard pens of uniform cattle,
while also offering many small packages to put together and make loads.
Cattle feeders were defensive in their approach to buying cattle today
as Live and Feeder Cattle futures contracts were much lower.  The
market was not near as active as last week as buyers tried to buy 
cattle lower.  Another winter storm forecast to arrive tomorrow added
more concern for cattle feeders.  56 percent were steers; 44 percent
heifers.  86 percent weighing over 600 lbs.
