Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 01/03/2018
 
Receipts:  1750    Last Week:  0    Year Ago:  1268
 
Compared to three weeks ago feeder steers traded unevenly 
steady, heifers 6.00-9.00 higher.  Attractive offering in today
with several long strings of quality feeders. Flesh conditions
remain moderate as cattle have faced extremely cold temperatures
and wind chills the past two weeks.  Demand good through out the
session, with very good demand for those long strings that resulted
in quality and uniform loads for buyers. 62 percent steers, 
38 percent heifers in the run. 81 percent over 600 lbs.
