Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 11/22/2016

Receipts:  1116    Week Ago:  2399    Year Ago:  1428

   Compared to last week, based on a light test 400-550 lbs steer
calves sold with a higher undertone. Heavier weights sold steady
to 3.00 higher. Heifers sold steady. A good portion of the offering
came to town carrying quite a bit of extra flesh, but that’s to be
expected with the phenomenal grazing season that most experienced
this year. Demand was good, best on steer calves as buyers aggressively
pursue those “grazers”. Supply was light due to the holiday week.
The feeder offering consisted of near 68 percent steers and bulls and
32 percent heifers with 49 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled
33 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold steady to 4.00 higher,
with the advance on lean and boning cows.
