Compared to last week: Feeder steers traded 5.00-9.00 lower. Feeder heifers sold 4.00-8.00 lower. A severe winter storm is expected across the Northern Plains towards the end of the week hampering movement towards the north. Demand light to moderate for yearlings as recent weeks have seen large placements of feeder cattle limiting pen space in many yards. Steer calves traded 6.00-8.00 lower. Heifer calves sold 3.00-5.00 lower. Demand moderate for the bulk of the offering, few stick out offerings that were in thinner flesh more suitable for grazing sold with good demand. Supply included: 100% Feeder Cattle (53% Steers, 45% Heifers, 2% Bulls). Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 60%.
