Missouri Weekly Weighted Average Feeder Cattle Report � week ending 8/03/18
                                                                          
Receipts:  29,414    Last Week:  26,068    Last Year:  19,875            


   Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers sold steady to 3.00 
higher. The supply of feeders was moderate to heavy and made up of a wide 
cross section from light weight calves to heavy weight yearlings. Condition 
and quality was about equally variable as well.  Cooler temperatures early 
in the week had some buyers showing some worry about health issues that 
normally do not come around for a few more months, by late week thought heat 
returned and it felt more like the customary August weather we are used to. 
Drought conditions continue to get worse even though some areas have had 
some recent rains. There is still some hope for fall pastures in some areas 
as some shades of green have returned but many areas are so far behind it 
will be hard to recover even if rains continue. Many producers are feeding 
some hay now or culling cattle trying to save anything that might be left in 
the pastures. Although hay is quite hard to find locally water issues are 
becoming even more concerning in the northwest which is mostly all listed as 
extreme drought now. Once again this week it appears feedlot trade will not 
occur until after hours. A handful of sales so far this week were reported 
at 109.00-110.00 live and 174.00-175.50 dressed but again that was very 
small volume. The boxed beef cutout closed on Thursday with the choice at 
203.80 and select at 197.10.
