Fed Cattle Rally, Feeder Cattle Slump

Cash fed cattle traded at $1 to $2 per cwt higher this week, while feeder cattle sold $4 to $5 lower.

Cattle in southern feedyards traded mostly at $127 per cwt., $1 higher. Cattle in the north traded at $127 to $128.50, which is $2 higher. Dressed sales occurred at $206 to $207.

Steers and heifers sold at auction steady to $4 lower, according to AMS reporters. Demand remains good for grazing-type cattle, and 4-weight steers are routinely fetching $200 per cwt in the Midwest.

AMS says auction receipts nationwide typically drop around the first of April and this year is shaping up to follow that trend.

“Year-to-date auction receipts are around 125,000 head lower than a year ago,” AMS said. “However, those totals are 205,000 ahead of the five year average.  As the Southern Plains goes through another difficult time with drought conditions, calves being grazed this winter are not as abundant as they typically are in that area.”

The Choice beef cutout closed Friday at $225.59 per cwt., up $1.45 from last Friday and at the highest level since June 30, 2017.  The Select cutout closed at $216.86 down $0.40 from last Friday. The Choice/Select spread stood at $8.73 per cwt.

Effective powerful love spell to get your Ex lover back urgently after breakup/divorce!.
Hi everyone,
I'm so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again.
My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.
I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again...
All thanks to Dr Ahmed if you have any problem contact Dr Ahmed now and I guarantee you that he will help you. Here’s his contact.
