Receipts:  6468    Last Week:  5034    Year Ago:  4832
 
Compared to last week: Feeder steers from 500 lbs. to 700 lbs. were 
steady to 4.00 higher, 700 lbs.to 750 lbs. were 6.00 to 8.00 lower, 
while the 750 lbs.to 850 lbs. were 1.00 to 2.00 lower. Feeder 
heifer's from 500 lbs. to 550 lbs. were 4.00 to 6.00 higher, the 
550 lbs. to 650 lbs. heifers were steady to 2.00 lower, while the 
700 lbs. to 750 lbs. heifers were steady to 4.00 higher. Good to very
good demand for todays light fleshed grass type cattle, good demand for
the moderate to moderate plus fleshed background cattle in todays offering.
Several long strings where buyers could put multiple loads of one owner cattle 
together. Plenty of part loads and packages where buyers could put 
loads together and save some money. Cattle marked value added were in
the NHTC program. Most of the cattle are relatively clean considering 
the muddy pen conditions in the area. Mostly order buyers on the 
seats with a few farmer feeders, buyers aggressive at times on the 
light fleshed grass type cattle. Feeder cattle consisted of 62 
percent steers, 37 percent heifers, and 1 percent bulls, with 
66 percent over 600 lbs. Next feeder sale will be Friday,January 18th,
expecting 5,000 or more high quality calves and yearlings.
