Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 07/12/2018
 
Receipts:  6561    Two Weeks Ago:  1167    Year Ago:  No Sale
 
   Compared to two weeks ago:  No price comparisons made as last
reported sale had very light receipts.  Hihger undertones were
evident however.  Demand was good to very good with active bidders. 
Quality was very attractive overall.  Many long strings and load lots
of backgrounded steers and heifers offered, allowing buyers the 
opportunity to fill yards with similar type cattle.  Weighing conditions
were attractive, as the heat index is near triple digits.  Flesh condition 
was mostly moderate.  Feeder cattle receipts were 61 percent steers,
39 percent heifers; 97 percent weighing over 600 lbs.  Sale next
Thursday July 19th with 2,000 head expected.
