Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 11/14/2017

Receipts:  2559    Week Ago:  2580    Year Ago:  2399

   Compared to last week, feeders sold uneven as steer calves under 550 lbs
sold 12.00-15.00 lower, 550-600 lbs 4.00-7.00 lower and heavier weights sold steady
to 3.00 lower. Heifers sold mostly steady except 400-500 lbs 3.00-10.00 lower
and 500-550 lbs trading 2.00-4.00 higher on good demand. Demand was mostly
moderate but much lighter for steers under 550 lbs than last week. Buyers were
more hesitant to push prices after a couple days of sharply lower futures
markets. Along with that the temperature swings still have buyers and feeders
thinking about health concerns. The feeder offering was made up of near 64
percent steers and bulls and 36 percent heifers with 48 percent over 600 lbs.
Cows and bulls totaled 13 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold 2.00-
3.00 higher. Slaughter bulls sold 1.00-2.00 higher.
