Missouri Weekly Weighted Average Feeder Cattle Report � Week Ending 03/15/19

Receipts:  36,951    Week Ago:  22,730    Year Ago:  36,656

   Compared to last week�s much lighter offerings, feeder steers and 
heifers sold steady to 5.00 lower.  Several local reporters had to 
compare to two weeks ago and those reports did call the markets higher 
but most gains came from last week.  The supply of feeders was moderate 
and made up of mostly mid-weight cattle in the 500-850 lbs range with 
lighter feather weights not near as available. Demand for cattle was 
moderate to good, with flesh conditions and ability to gain lbs quickly 
making some calves much more attractive to buyers than others. 
Temperatures have slowly started to rise and signs of spring are showing 
up but the big story this week was heavy rains and wind. Although nothing 
like the horrid snow and flood issues producers are dealing with in 
states like WY and NE, flooding has been causing issues here in Missouri 
as well but given the hand others are dealing with it nearly makes our 
situation seem minor.  Boxed beef cutout as of the close on Thursday show 
choice at 227.70 up just over a buck and half from last week and select 
at 218.76 down two cents from last Friday. Feedlot sales this week have 
reported live sales at mostly 127.00 and dressed sales at 204.00-205.00. 
The Missouri stocker formula on Friday was at 155.90 down nearly 7.00 
from last Friday.
