Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 11/15/2016

Receipts:  2399    Week Ago:  1681    Year Ago:  1427

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold steady to 5.00
higher with a few spots 6.00-10.00 higher mainly on calves under
450 lbs as demand has increased for those grazing cattle to send
south. A nice run of feeders was on offer that included a mix of
both calves and several loads of yearlings and demand was good.
Stability in the marketplace recently has given buyers confidence
to make purchases after a long period of volatility. Also, buyers
werenÂ’t quite as picky this week and demand for un-weaned calves
and bulls increased. Supply was heavy. The feeder offering
consisted of near 62 percent steers and bulls and 38 percent
heifers with 63 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 13
percent of the offering. Slaughter cows and bulls sold steady.
Demand best for fleshier cows.
