Missouri Weekly Weighted Average Feeder Cattle Report � Week Ending 
06/16/17

Receipts:  21,080    Week Ago:  42,755    Year Ago:  19,830

   Compared to last week, feeder steers sold 5.00 to mostly 10.00 lower, 
heifers sold 2.00 to 8.00 lower. The supply of feeders was light to moderate 
following last week�s heavy offering. Many farmers were back in the fields 
this week, haying and wheat harvest was rolling along in high gear. Combined 
with lower markets and heat that was enough to discourage any big runs of 
cattle. The Choice boxed beef cutout closed at its highest level of the year 
on Monday afternoon at 252.52 but has lost some ground as the week progressed 
closing Thursday at 249.74. Just shy of a 30.00 premium over the Select. 
Futures markets have slowly lost ground for several consecutive days now. 
Feed lot sales have also been at lower levels this week with live sales 
averaging near 131.00 for the week and dressed near 210.00. Dressed carcass 
weights increased by 8 lbs on the latest report. Profit margins continue to 
be good for feeders and packers at 500.00 and 206.00 per head respectively 
according to last week�s report. Both sectors will be fighting hard in the 
coming weeks to maintain those margins but no doubt the normal seasonal 
pressure will make that task difficult.
