Palmyra - F and T Livestock Auction
Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 02/12/2018

Receipts:  594    Week Ago:  913    Year Ago:  1026

   Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers steady on a light
test.  Slaughter cows 1.00-2.00 higher.  Each week as we are creeping
closer to spring grass, the demand seems to grow for the lighter weight
green calves.  Demand was good and the supply light.  Cows and bulls
accounted for 17 percent of the run and feeders 83 percent.  In the
feeder supply, steers and bulls made up approximately 59 percent of
the run; heifers 41 percent; steers and heifers over 600 lbs totaled
around 48 percent.

Scheduling note:  Next week�s sale will feature a replacement cow
special during the morning cow auction.  The next feeder special will
be Monday, February 26.
