Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Receipts:  400    Last Week:  602    Year Ago:  616
 
   Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers were steady to weak.
Few comparable sales with last week as the weight composition of 
the offering was quite different. Supply was light to moderate and 
demand was good. Of the total receipts 28 percent were cows and 
bulls, with several nice cow-calf pairs, but few replacement cows 
ahead of next week's Special Cow Sale.  Of the feeder supply 50 
percent were steers and bulls and 50 percent were heifers; 27 percent
of the cattle were over 600 lbs. 

***Scheduling Note: Sale schedule for Tuesday, October 29, 2013 will
