Missouri Weekly Weighted Average Feeder Cattle Report � Week Ending 
02/09/18

Receipts:  22,211    Week Ago:  43,049    Year Ago:  26,432

   Compared to last week feeder sold mostly steady to 3.00 higher. The 
supply of feeders was light to moderate. A couple of cold fronts brought 
various types of winter precipitation to parts of the state making 
dangerous to near impossible to get up and down the roads especially 
with a trailer full of valuable commodities. Several barns cancelled 
sales and many others saw much lighter offerings this week but that 
did not affect the market as demand remains good for feeders. Buyers 
continue to eagerly buy up cattle for summer grazing needs before the 
supply of suitable cattle gets more difficult to come by. All these 
buyers continue to be betting on optimism as conditions not only in 
Missouri but parts of Kansas and Oklahoma remain in drought status. As 
of the latest report all but 1% of Missouri is rated either abnormally 
dry or officially in some stage of drought. The south central part of 
the state seeing the worst conditions were producers in 15 counties 
potentially eligible for cost share assistance under the Emergency 
Conservation Program through FSA. As far as feedlot sales go this week 
business has been pretty slow as of this report a few lots and scattered 
sales have taken place at steady money but no real measurable volume 
has been reported. Boxed beef cut outs have lost about a buck from this 
time last week the Choice closed Thursday at 208.53 maintaining the 
same 5.00 spread as last week. Futures markets have also lost some 
ground this week a combination of effects from a feeling of being over 
sold and the huge sale off in the stock market this week.
