Feeder cattle prices compared to 2 weeks ago which was the last good test but the recent big storm last week still impacts current road conditions and very muddy pens which kept the volume lower than normal yet. However the prices were mostly steady to 5 higher and jumped higher especially when the auction had good volume for active bidding. 

The slaughter cow volume was 11,800 head at the test auctions which was just a little higher than two weeks ago prior to that big storm in the Southern Plains. The cow prices were either side of steady from 1 lower to 1 higher compared to two weeks ago.
