Wyoming and Nebraska Direct Feeder Cattle Summary

Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 10/06/2017

Receipts: 1988    Week Ago: 55     Year Ago: 1,646       

    No comparable sales this week for a market comparison. With the 
dwindling numbers of true yearling cattle, feedlots were aggressive this 
week buying up the short available supply. Cattlemen that run calves on 
wheat pastures were also in the market as many areas in the southern 
plains appear they will have ample grazing this fall with the resent 
rains. Slaughter cattle market remains at a standstill at this report 
time as feedlots are holding for a fully steady market.  Direct prices 
are current FOB with a 2-3 percent shrink or equivalent and with a 10-20 
cent slide on calves and 6-8 cent slide on yearlings from base weight. 
Delivered prices include freight, commissions and other expenses. Current 
sales are up to 14 days delivery. Receipts this week included 14 percent 
heifers with near 74 percent of the offerings weighing over 600 lbs.
