Colorado feeder cattle auction summary


The Colorado Auction Feeder Cattle Summary, Greeley, Colo., reported receipts of 2,241 head March 19, compared to 2,041 head last week and 4,150 head last year, according to the USDA-Colorado Department of Agriculture Market News, Greeley, Colo.

Compared to last week, there was not an adequate test of the market due to a limited comparable sales. However, a lower undertone was noted on all classes. High wind coupled with badly needed rain and snow affected most of the state this week, forcing interstates closures, limiting numbers offered at the markets. Trading activity was moderate on moderate demand. The supply consisted of 48% steers and 52% heifers. Feeders over 600 pounds comprised 48% of the total supply.
