Receipts:  1528    Last Week:  N/A     Year Ago:  1832     

   Compared to last sale: Demand and trade activity moderate to good.  Feeder 
steers under 600 lbs traded unevenly steady.  Steers weighing 600 to 700 lbs 
traded 7.00 to 9.00 higher and those 700 lbs and above were too lightly tested 
to accurately trend.  Feeder heifers traded mostly 2.00 to 7.00 higher across 
all weight ranges.  Slaughter cows traded steady to 6.00 higher. Slaughter bulls 
did not have a test at the last sale, so no comparison is available.  Today´┐Żs 
supply consisted mostly of home raised, preconditioned, calves and yearlings. In 
feeder cattle, the run consisted of 54 percent steers, 46 percent heifers. 
Approximately 33 percent of the run weighed over 600 pounds.  The total run 
consisted of 75 percent feeder cattle, 7 percent replacement cattle, with the 
remainder being mostly slaughter cows and bulls. The next available report will 
be Wednesday, May 1, 2019.
