Feeder cattle prices firm up as heavy feeders lead the way

Market analyst Ed Czerwien provides his weekly market outlook on feeder cattle and slaughter cows.

Feeder cattle prices firmed up after last week's big drop thanks to big gains by heavy feeders, which had the biggest declines last week. Also, Wednesday sales, which had the biggest losses last week, had the biggest gains this week.

Slaughter cow prices followed the typical summer situation: areas with decent summer runs prices were steady to firm and areas like the Southern Plains which had smaller runs were 1-2 higher
