Compared to the previous week, the feeder steers were selling $1 to $4 higher. The feeder heifers were mostly steady. The demand was moderate to good and very good for cattle weighing over 950 pounds. No trend was available for steer and heifer calves due to limited comparable offerings. The demand was moderate for weaned calves, unweaned or short weaned fleshier calves sold with limited demand. The quality was plain to average. Cooler temperatures are expected toward the end of the week bringing more seasonal type weather. Farmers have all but finished planting wheat and some wheat has emerged. The supply included 100% feeder cattle with about 58% steers, 40% were heifers and 1% were bulls. The feeder cattle supply weighing over 600 pounds was 76%.
