Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 7/11/2017


Receipts:  1525    Two Weeks Ago:  1491    Year Ago:  1087


   Compared to two weeks ago, based on a light test of comparable sales calves
sold steady to 5.00 lower with the overall quality of calves not as attractive
as the last reported sale. However a nice offering of yearlings traded with a
higher undertone on very good demand. Futures showed strength throughout the day
and buyers came ready to buy with most of the offering long time weaned and on
the yearling side. Demand was moderate for calves and supply was moderate. The
feeder offering was made up of near 51 percent steers and bulls and 49 percent
heifers with 54 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 15 percent of the
offering. Slaughter cows sold steady to 2.00 higher.
