Receipts: 663 Two Weeks Ago: 313 Year Ago: 809

Compared to two weeks ago, too few comparisons could be made for a price trend. Most of the feeder cattle were yearlings that came in as bigger draft and a couple load lots which is typical for a summer run. Since the holiday break Feeder Cattle futures have bounced around to end up close to where they were a couple weeks ago. Demand was good with a heavy supply on a hot July day. The feeder offering was made up of near 74 percent steers and bulls, 26 percent heifers with 84 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 15 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold 1.00-2.00 lower compared to two weeks ago.
