Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 01/21/2019
 
Receipts:  387    Two Weeks Ago:  722    Year Ago:  1160
 
   Compared to two weeks ago, few comparisons available, but feeders 
traded with a lower undertone. The feeder offering consisted of 40 
percent steers and bulls, 60 percent heifers, and 45 percent of the 
total feeder offering weighed over 600 lbs. Bitter cold weather has 
hit the area, freezing up the ground and making it a little easier 
to get into pastures. Slaughter cows mostly steady.
