Market Notes

Compared to last week: Steer calves from 450# to 599# were $6.00 to $10.00 higher, 600# to 699# were $2.00 to $4.00 higher; heifer calves from 400# to 449# were $2.00 to $4.00 higher, 450# to 599# were $7.00 to $10.00 higher, 600# to 649# were $2.00 to $4.00 higher. No other comparisons available. Good demand all day long for this large offering of calves and yearlings. The best demand was for full loads, especially when offered as multiple loads of one owner cattle. Lots of interest in part loads and packages as well today. Most of the calves were fully preconditioned, in light to moderate flesh and right off the cow. A couple consignments of weaned calves today. There was a large crowd today with lots of order buyers and several farmer feeders competing with internet bidders for todays offering. A few consignments still show some affects of last summers drought, rougher hair coat, light flesh condition and lacking the "bloom" that some calves are showing right now. Lots of interest in todays limited supply of yearlings. Next feeder sale will be in two weeks on December 3, 2021. Stay safe, and Happy Thanksgiving.

Supply included: 100% Feeder Cattle (58% Steers, 41% Heifers, 1% Bulls). Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 42%. AUCTION This Week Last Reported 11/12/2021 Last Year Total Receipts: 7,613 9,021 8,277 Feeder Cattle: 7,613(100.0%) 9,021(100.0%) 8,277(100.0%)
