Missouri Weekly Weighted Average Feeder Cattle Report � Week Ending 
04/13/18

Receipts:  29,752    Week Ago:  15,905    Year Ago:  36,839

   Compared to last week, feeder calves traded steady to 5.00 higher, spots 10.00 higher early week, yearlings traded with higher undertones. Several reporters noted the lack of yearlings being offered this week. After a receipts slump last week, cattle producers were able to bring cattle to town this week. The poor weather and struggling markets hindered receipts last week, but cattle owners took advantage of the stronger markets this week, showing an almost double amount of cattle sold in the reported barns in Missouri, the majority fitting in those 400 to 600 pound weight breaks. The Fed Cattle Exchange had 3931 head on offering and 509 head of those sold with a price of 117.71 for the nearby delivery, slightly higher than last week. Boxed beef cutouts steadily decreased, except for Choice cuts on Monday and Select cuts on Thursday, closing with slight increases. For the week, Choice and Select cuts are 1.83 and 4.93 lower, respectively, compared to last week as of Thursday�s close. Cattle futures closed with strong, triple digit gains on Thursday, seemingly being brought up by the cash market. While the most recent rally has been well received by sellers, an increase in cattle supply is expected in the next several weeks. A thing of note is the price spread between April and June Live Cattle Contracts. The spread on April and June contracts is 12.00, as of Thursday�s close. There is also a large discount compared to the cash market. While there is still time for April contracts to trade, it is something to think about before they expire. The more spring-like weather was a welcomed sight, before the weather turns again this weekend. Farmers are trying to get as much fieldwork done they can with this recent break in the weather. Anhydrous tanks pulled behind trucks and floater trucks were a common sight on the roads these last few days.
