Demand was moderate to good, with very good demand for steers and heifers that were certified as NHTC (non-hormone treated cattle). With calves being comingled at area auctions, getting to dusty weaning pens many buyers are looking for bawlers that have had fall vaccinations especially, a respiratory vaccine. Fall harvest continues from east to west in the state. Ranging from combining soybeans, picking dry corn, high moisture corn, edible beans and silage chopping. Most reports on bushels of soybeans and corn have been better than the producer thought it would be! Nebraska feedlots had a tick of an upward push on their sales this week.
