Market information provided by USDA
02 Feb '23
Compared to last week: All feeder cattle were too lighly tested today to develop an accurate market trend, however steady to firm undertones were noted on steers under 750 lbs and higher undertones were noticed on steers over 750 lbs. Heifer calves sold with higher undertones on all offerings. Quality today was mostly average to attractive. Demand was mostly good for light to moderate offerings. Most calves sold in small to moderate size packages. Most calves were long weaned from 60-90 days. Orderbuyers, buying for packers, continue to show very good demand for high quality heavy weight offerings. Market activity was mostly active today, dispite a lighter offering. Weigh up cows sold on mostly good to very good demand for mostly light offerings. Packers showed mostly very good demand for cows for immidiate harvest as they pushed to own as many offerings as possible. Slaughter cows sold mostly 7.00-10.00 higher on boning and breaking cows, however the largest advance was seen on lean cows which sold sharply higher, with mostly sales 12.00-17.00 higher. Extremely cold weather has limited the availibily of cows as cold weather has kept cows from coming to auction. Slaughter bulls sold 2.00-5.00 higher in a narrow compairson. Young age cows suitable to feed or rebreed were too lightly tested to develop any market trend. Compairsons are difficult as last week had several consignments of fancy one iron, homeraised, ranch tested open, young cows, while quality this week was not as attractive.
