Feeder cattle steady to $4 higher

While test auctions did see solid feeder cattle numbers this past week, they were down from last year's numbers.

Test auctions saw a solid run of feeder cattle with 29,100 head. However, it was a little lower than last week, as well as last year. Prices continue to increase and were mostly steady to $4 higher. However the lighter weight stocker type cattle with much smaller numbers lately were steady to just a little weaker again.

Slaughter cow numbers at the test auctions continue to increase; some with 9,100 head this week. Prices also continue to climb and were steady to $3 higher with much more active bidding by packer buyers.
