Compared to Last Wednesday: steer calves 450 to 499 lbs and 600 to 649 lbs 3.00 to 4.00 lower, 500 to 599 lbs steady to 4.00 higher. Yearling steers not well compared. Heifer calves 450 to 499 lbs mostly steady, 500 to 599 lbs 5.00 to 8.00 lower. Best test on yearling heifers 900 to 949 lbs 2.00 to 3.00 lower. Moderate to good demand for yearlings, mostly moderate demand for calves. A couple strings and loads made up most of the yearling offering. Varied quality, from plain to attractive, with most of the cattle carrying some flesh, Mostly packages and just a handful of loads for the calf offering. A few consignments of weaned calves, but quite a few of these were weaned less than 30 days, the majority still coming right off the cow. Preconditioning varied, lots with just a good round of fall shots and not much for spring time and few just 7 way deals. Mostly light to moderate flesh on calves overall. A moderate to active market with both buyers and farmer feeders in the seats. The futures complex continues to frustrate with another day of losses on both feeder and live cattle, some months over 5.00. The area is enjoying unusually warm temps, today was close to 60 degrees. Next feeder cattle sale is Wednesday, December 13.
