Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 11/17/2015
 
Receipts:  455    Week Ago:  944    Year Ago:  543      

   Not enough feeder cattle on offer this week to truly test the market, but where 
comparisons to last week’s feeder special could be made, this week’s calf offering 
sold 4.00 to 8.00 lower and yearlings 3.00 to 4.00 lower. Slaughter cows 2.00 to 
5.00 lower. A rainy day in mid-Missouri made for a packed house for this month’s 
Special Cow Sale in conjunction with the regular weekly auction. Several high 
quality, reputation consignments were met with very active bidding and had no 
trouble finding a new home. Supply and demand moderate. Cows and bulls accounted 
for 52 percent of the total offering. The feeder supply consisted of 78 percent 
steers and bulls and 22 percent heifers; 62 percent of all the feeder cattle 
weighed over 600 lbs.
