NATIONAL FEEDER & STOCKER CATTLE SUMMARY – WEEK ENDING 04/17/2020
  
RECEIPTS:      Auctions      Direct    Video/Internet       Total
This Week:      98,800       49,400        47,000         195,200   
Last Week:     112,900       63,600         4,600         181,100

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers in the South-Central region were 5.00 to 
10.00 higher, while the North-Central and Southeast steers and heifers were steady to 
4.00 higher.  Mother Nature wanted to make sure farmers and ranchers knew who is in 
charge this week.  Weather was a bit crazy this past week, on Thursday producers were 
in short sleeves in the Southern Plains enjoying sunshine with reports of some hay 
being baled and wrapped, while producers throughout the Northern Plains had a rude 
awakening in the middle of April this year with reports of ten inches of snow or more 
reported in Iowa.  Ranchers have been wanting to sell yearlings and fall calves 
alike, however price levels do not meet what was anticipated months ago.  Some 
producers have been content to continue to feed them longer, however with calving 
season in full swing in the Northern Plains, ranchers don’t have enough time for 
calving and feeding last years’ calf crop as well.  The auction receipts on this 
report tallied under 100K again this week, the third time in the last five 
weeks.  This week’s volume is roughly 50 percent of the same week a year ago and 
year-to-date auction volume is around 18.5 percent under a year ago as well.  Meat 
packers and processors across the country have continued to close or reduce chain 
speed over the past few weeks in response to staffing shortages.  These closures and 
cutbacks disrupt supply chains as they work to meet shifting demand from foodservice 
to retail channels and has contributed to the price level drops seen in recent weeks 
throughout the livestock markets nationwide.  Last week’s estimated beef production 
dropped 13.5 percent from the previous week and this week’s is estimated 6.7 percent 
lower than last week for a cumulative decline of over 20 percent from two weeks 
ago.  Packers had anticipated a nationwide distraction and ramped up slaughter rates 
a few weeks ago when there were a couple atypical March (more June-like) harvests 
above 650K.  With the slaughter rate slowdown, packers will buy limited numbers to 
make up a weekly harvest.  As of noon today, the national week-to-date negotiated 
cash total reported was under 10K head, which if no more is traded, will be the 
smallest cash cattle trade volume since Livestock Mandatory Reporting started in 
2001. Some analysts will say it will be the smallest ever since the advent of feedlot 
cattle trade.  The feedyards were very current with what was described as pulled two 
to three weeks ahead; now cattle are being described as two to three weeks 
behind.  When marketing of fed cattle gets behind, slaughter weights get 
bigger.  Cattle Slaughter under FI estimated at 502K for the week, 34K less than last 
week and 140K less than a year ago.  Boxed beef prices will increase with the limited 
slaughter.  As of noon today, Choice boxed beef was reported at 238.07, while Select 
cuts were reported at 229.60.  Auction volume this week included 53 percent weighing 
over 600 lbs and 43 percent heifers.
