Missouri Weekly Weighted Average Feeder Cattle Report � Week Ending 6/8/18

Receipts:  42,277    Last Week:  15,098    Last Year: 42,755            

   Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers sold steady to 4.00 higher, 
although the feather weight calves under 450 lbs saw pressure and had several 
instances of lower quotes due to concerns of heat related stress. The supply of 
feeders was moderate to heavy which was expected following the holiday shortened 
week last week. Reporters noted that there was a fairly good mix of both weaned 
and unweaned calves and a few markets had some loads of yearlings in the 
offering. Demand was good even though many areas do not have near the amount of 
grass they would like, buyers are doing their best to fill orders and keep the 
supply lines flowing. Slaughter volume has been at levels not seen for several 
years as demand for product has been extraordinary good both at home and abroad. 
These factors arrived at the best possible time and have been key to holding the 
market together as the wall of cattle has arrived and seems to be being absorbed 
without near the doom and gloom that many if not all saw as highly likely just a 
few months ago. To date export sales for the year are up over 19 percent from 
the same point in 2017. Feedlot sales so far this week have been very light as 
feed yard managers seem to be holding out for more money hoping to get packers 
to let go of some of the profit they have been making. It is possible they might 
have the upper hand as many fell that packers have used up most of the inventory 
that was bought for future delivery in the previous month. The choice boxed beef 
cutout closed on Thursday at 226.41 and select at 203.41. A final big of good 
news for the week came out on Thursday as the ELD ag exemption was made 
officially effective for the next five years.
