A winter like storm postponed the feeder sale from Friday to Saturday as much of the region received 6”-10” of snow and experienced blizzard like wind for several days. Multiple weather-related cancellations shortened up today’s offering as some producers simply could not get cattle to market due to road condition. Compared to last week’s sale the yearling steers were too lightly test for a comparison, on the yearling heifers the best comparison is on the 850 lbs to 950 lbs weight class and would be considered steady to 2.00 higher. On the spring born calves the market would be steady with last week’s sale on a limited test. Today’s feeder cattle were in attractive flesh condition as the yearlings were straight off grass and spring claves coming off the cow. Demand for today’s yearlings were good to very good with a lesser demand for the spring born calves, as most cattle feeders are just not ready for a bawling calf. Several long strings of yearlings in today’s offering, gave buyers a chance to put multiple loads of one owner cattle in the same pen. Next feeder sale will be on Wednesday, Oct 16th expecting 3,500 to 4,000 high quality calves. Supply included: 100% Feeder Cattle (42% Steers, 58% Heifers). Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 79%.
