Mitchell Livestock Auction
Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 12/06/2018

Receipts: 3942 Last Week Ago: 5890 Year Ago: 4227

Compared to last week: Steer and heifer calves traded very unevenly.
Steers and heifers under 550 lbs steady to 2.00 higher, 550-700 lbs 2.00 to
5.00 lower with a few instances steady, steers over 700 lbs 3.00 to 4.00
higher while the heifers over 700 lbs steady to 1.00 higher. Yearling steers
too lightly tested for comparison, yearling heifers steady to 1.00 higher.
A large offering of calves this week, many weaned and carrying a moderate
to moderate plus amount of flesh. Buyers didn?t mind some extra flesh on a
weaned one but were less interested in a bawling, fleshy calf. Most of the
calves that were right off the cow were in lighter flesh and didn?t see
much discount. Fewer yearlings offered this week, quality not near as attractive but there were still plenty of eager buyers. Good demand for
weaned calves, moderate to good for unweaned. Good demand for yearlings.
50 percent were steers; 45 percent heifers. 71 percent weighing over 600 lbs.
Next week expecting 6,000 starting at 8:00am.
