Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 10/19/2018
 
Receipts:  9998    Last Week:  2920    Year Ago:  8354
 
Compared to last Friday: steer calves from 400 lbs. to 500 lbs.were 
4.00 to 6.00 lower, the steers from 500 lbs. to 650 lbs.were 8.00 
to 10.00 lower; the heifer calve from 400 lbs. to 500 lbs. were 6.00 
to 10.00 lower, the 500 lbs. to 600 lbs. heifers were from 2.00 to 
6.00 lower. No comparison made on the yearlings due to a limited test.
Multiple loads of one owner cattle in both the calves and yearlings 
were offered today and they saw the best demand. Demand overall was 
moderate today on the calves, just not as active as last week. Very 
attractive offering of high quality calves and yearlings in town 
today. Most of the calves were fully preconditioned and right off 
the cows. Flesh condition ranged from light to moderate. The market 
was under pressure this week due to the sheer volume of cattle moving
to market in this region. 22 percent over 600 lbs. 57 percent 
steers, 43 percent heifers. Next feeder cattle auction will be 
wednesday Oct. 24th expecting 5,500 to 6,000 high quality calves, 
Friday October 26th expecting 9,000 or more high quality calves and 
yearlings.
