Stocker and feeder calf prices were steady during April according to Drovers 50-market summary. Steer calves 400 to 500 pounds averaged $110.87 per hundredweight, down a few cents. Steers, 600 to 700 pounds averaged $92.02 per hundredweight, a few cents higher. Heifer calves weighing 400 to 500 pounds reached a milestone averaging over $100 per hundredweight. Yearling heifers averaged $81.77 per hundredweight. Emptying pens and improved feedyard conditions created strong demand for feeder cattle in March and April. But fed cattle will begin to lose money in May, June and July prompting prices for feeders to trend lower.
