Special Value Added Feeder Cattle Report for 1/07/2015

Receipts:  5627    Month Ago:  6279    Year Ago:  3400
 
   The last Value Added sale was one month ago, too far back for a 
meaningful price comparison.  Compared to Monday's sale, steers and 
heifers under 700 lbs steady to firm, steers over 700 lbs steady to 
3.00 lower, heifers over 700 lbs steady on comparable sales.  Demand 
moderate to good, supply moderate.  Strong fundamentals have developed 
the last two weeks, but Live Cattle and Feeder Cattle futures locked 
limit down on Thursday.  All calves are on a wean-vac program and 
heifers guaranteed open.  The feeder supply included 63 percent steers, 
36 percent heifers, with 66 percent over 600 lbs.
