Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for Wednesday August 1, 2012

 

Receipts:  1094    Three Weeks Ago:  1652    Year Ago:  N/A

 

   Compared to three weeks ago:  Feeder steers 2.00 to 4.00 lower where

comparable sales were noted.  Not enough comparable sales on feeder heifers from

the previous sale for an adequate market trend, but a lower undertone was noted. 

Slaughter cows and bulls traded mostly 4.00 to 6.00 higher.  According to the

U.S. Drought Monitor, moderate to exceptional drought conditions now exist in

areas where 70 percent of the U.S. cow herd is located.  This has forced many

producers to rethink typical marketing strategies and schedules as inputs

continue to rise.  Trading activity was moderate on moderate to good demand. 

Supply included approximately 85 percent feeder cattle, 9 percent slaughter

cows, 5 percent slaughter bulls and feeder cows, and 1 percent replacements. 

The feeder cattle supply was comprised of approximately 70 percent steers, and

heifers 30 percent.  About 86 percent of the feeder supply weighted over 600

lbs.
