Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 11/29/2016

Receipts:  2303    Week Ago:  1116    Year Ago:  1433

   Compared to last week, steers under 700 lbs traded mostly 3.00-
7.00 higher, spots 10.00 higher; no recent comparable sales of heavier
weights for a price comparison. Heifer calves weighing 400-450 and
500-550 lbs 9.00-10.00 higher, all other weights steady to 5.00 higher.
Fed cattle trading higher has helped the feeder cattle market and
demand was good to very good as buyers were actively pursuing all
weights of cattle. Supply was moderate to heavy. A cold front is
going to bring the coldest temps of the season to the area. The feeder
offering consisted of near 64 percent steers and bulls and 36 percent
heifers with 57 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 17 percent
of the offering. Slaughter cows sold 2.00-3.00 higher and bulls sold
steady 1.00 higher.
