Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 11/28/2017

Receipts:  2214    Week Ago:  965    Year Ago:  2303

   Compared to a light test last week, steers traded steady to 5.00 higher
and heifers sold mostly steady. Recent gains and stability in the futures
market have given buyers some confidence to be more aggressive purchasing 
cattle again after the holiday week. A high quality run of both calves and
yearlings was offered and demand was good for all weights of cattle. Along with
that buyers were more receptive to the un-weaned calves and they didn’t see as
steep of discounts as previous weeks as we get later in the year. Supply was
moderate. The feeder offering was made up of near 63 percent steers and bulls 
and 37 percent heifers with 63 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 11
percent of the offering. Slaughter cows and bulls sold steady except lean cows
trading firm to 2.00 higher.
