Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 12/5/2017

Receipts:  4856    Week Ago:  2214    Year Ago:  3045

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers traded steady to 7.00 lower.
Supply was heavy for the annual customer appreciation sale with a large crowd on
hand. Several reputation strings of cattle were offered and demand was moderate
to mostly good despite cattle futures being on a downward trend the last few
trading sessions. Trade was active and buyers werenÂ’t too concerned with what 
the CME was doing during the day as the quality cattle just kept coming through
the ring. A cold front that swept through the region Monday afternoon brought
some much needed moisture and colder weather. The feeder offering was made up of
near 62 percent steers and bulls and 38 percent heifers with 47 percent over 600
lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 10 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows sold
2.00-3.00 lower.
