Cattle Auction Report for 12/01/15                 
 
Receipts:  634    Week Ago:  372    Year Ago:  902      

   Compared to last week’s light run, feeder steers and heifers sold steady to 
firm. Slaughter cows steady to 1.00 lower. Wet, muddy conditions slowed cattle 
movement in mid Missouri and several planned consignors held off until roads and 
lots are in a little better shape. The stock that did make it to town was of 
outstanding quality and for the most part in exceptionally good condition, 
including a couple groups from local reputation producers. Supply moderate and 
demand moderate to good. Cows and bulls accounted for 11 percent of the total 
offering. The feeder supply consisted of 54 percent steers and bulls and 46 
percent heifers; 39 percent of all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 lbs.
