Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 11/7/2017

Receipts:  2580    Week Ago:  1774    Year Ago:  1681

   Compared to last week, steers traded steady except for several loads of
850-950 lb steers selling with a higher undertone following the sharply higher
fed cattle trade the last several weeks. Heifers sold steady to 5.00 higher with
the advance on a few packages of yearlings. A quality run of cattle was offered
and the market has several positive factors supporting it. Demand was good with
a moderate to heavy supply. The feeder offering was made up of near 64 percent
steers and bulls and 36 percent heifers with 58 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and
bulls totaled 14 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold steady to 1.00
lower. Slaughter bulls sold steady to 1.00 higher.
