Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 11/1/2016

Receipts:  1323    Week Ago:  1075    Year Ago:  1676

   Compared to last week, based on limited comparisons steers
sold mostly steady. Heifer calves sold steady to 5.00 higher,
yearlings not well tested. Calves under 450 lbs had a sharply
higher undertone. Few comparisons could be made to last week.
Quality was more average and with grass still in abundance
feeders are coming to town fleshier than usual. A good portion
of the calves were un-weaned as well. Demand was good for 400
lb heifers and two loads of yearlings. Moderate to light for
everything else. The feeder offering consisted of near 68
percent steers and bulls and 32 percent heifers with 38 percent
over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 15 percent of the offering.
Slaughter cows sold steady.
