Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 11/21/2017

Receipts:  965    Week Ago:  2559    Year Ago:  1116

   Compared to last week, based on light comparisons steers and heifers traded
with a steady undertone. Cattle futures had an up day on Tuesday to erase
most of Mondays losses which was a welcome sight for producers after several
days in the red. Supply was light due to the approaching holiday and demand was
mostly moderate, good for calves under 450 lbs and light for un-weaned calves
over 550 lbs. The feeder offering was made up of near 58 percent steers and
bulls and 42 percent heifers with 40 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls
totaled 34 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold uneven as lean and 
boning cows sold 1.00 to 2.00 lower and breaking cows traded 2.00-4.00 lower.
Slaughter bulls sold steady.
