Missouri Weekly Weighted Average Feeder Cattle Report � Week Ending 01/12/18

Receipts:  51,603     Last Week:  29,047    Last Year:  47,490            

   Compared to last week, feeders fully 5.00 to 10.00 lower. Heifers over 600 
lbs saw some of the sharpest declines but no weight or class was immune to the 
much lower market that seemed to lose more ground with each day that passed. As 
far as volume goes the first full business week of 2018 was no let down with a 
heavy supply overwhelmingly made up of feeders in the 500-800 lb range. Heavy 
supplies were not limited to just Missouri as big auctions running late in to 
the night were common all across the US. Superior Livestock held their annual 
video auction in conjunction with the National Western Livestock Show in Denver, 
CO, Bellringer XXXI, with over 67,000 head being sold over a two day period 
having delivery dates current though June. Near 3000 head of those cattle were 
from Missouri producers. Those cattle are not included in this report but that 
sale is reported by USDA Market News and can be found on the web at 
https://www.ams.usda.gov/mnreports/am_ls753.txt  Feedlot sales developed early 
this week with some sales reported on Monday in the south getting that trade 
started. More sales reported Tuesday and Wednesday as packers filled their 
slaughter needs. Early week trade is not unheard of but it has been quite some 
time since business has taken place before the week was at least half past. Live 
sales were mostly at 120.00 and dressed sales at 192.00, 2.00 to 3.00 lower 
respectively from last week�s sales which took place only a few days before last 
Friday. On Thursday the Choice boxed beef cutout closed .99 cents lower at 
209.07 with Select .28 cents lower at 202.95 compared to last Friday�s close of 
209.51 for Choice and 202.32 on the Select. As of this report live cattle 
futures are down around 2.00 for the week and feeder contacts are .50 to .60 
lower except the nearby Jan which is set to expire soon is off a bit over 3.00. 
In the country this week temperatures were all over the board the week started 
with a touch of winter weather in a few places followed by a huge warm up with 
nearly all the state seeing low to mid 60�s a Tuesday and into early Wednesday 
before an arctic blast pushed through dropping temperatures 20-30 degrees in 
less than an hour. That front brought a mixture of rain sleet snow and a 
freezing combination of something in between to most areas. The little bit of 
moisture has been welcome regardless of the form really, but by no means 
anywhere near enough to do much to the drought status in the southern part of 
the state where near 25 percent of the total state is still in severe to extreme 
drought.  Of the remaining 75 percent of the state only 2 percent is not listed 
as abnormally dry or in the moderate drought stage.
