Missouri Weekly Weighted Average Feeder Cattle Report � Week Ending 09/08/17

Receipts:  13,941    Week Ago:  21,806    Year Ago:  13,473

   Compared to last week, calves sold mostly steady, yearlings sold steady to 
5.00 higher. The supply of feeders was light as all the normal Monday sales 
were closed in observance of the holiday and several other sales early to mid-
week remained dark as well. Even though the overall supply was light with only 
about half of the normal number of reported auctions this week, a few auctions 
did have moderate to heavy offerings locally. Two of the northern auctions 
(Green City and St. Joseph) accounted for over one-third of the week�s receipts 
and had several load lots and big strings of yearlings. Yearlings weren�t 
limited only those two barns however as other reporters mentioned seeing some 
mixed in the offering as well. Very noticeable was the supply of heifers over 
700 lbs. which has been has been mostly nonexistent in recent weeks.  Demand 
was good especially for the yearlings as buyers know the supply over the next 
couple months will shift nearly entirely to spring born calves.  Feedlot sales 
have been very slow to develop with only a handful of sales reported so far. 
Live sales were reported at 103.00 mark and dressed sales 163.00.  Feedlot 
managers are trying hard to hold markets above 100.00 live and although 
last week marked 42 weeks straight of being on the positive side margins have 
all but disappeared now. Corn harvest is under way in most all areas of the 
state. It will be a bit before it ramps in to high gear but is no doubt 
underway. Many of the farmer feeders are out of the market and will not come 
back until they see just how much corn they want to walk to town at a later 
date. With the current price levels of grain it is likely if harvest goes well 
they will be eager to own cattle once the fall runs get here and temperatures 
straighten out.
