Sedalia - Central Missouri Sales Company
Feeder Cattle Report for 12/4/2017

Receipts:  701    Week Ago:  850    Year Ago:  911

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers traded steady to 5.00 lower. The
majority of the cattle sold as singles or in small groups, however there were
several quality consignments of weaned calves with a health program. Despite
Friday�s sharply lower future�s market demand was good as buyers still feel 
comfortable with the current price levels. A cold front is expected to move
through the region Monday and bring much more seasonal temperatures to the area.
The feeder offering was made up of near 41 percent steers and bulls, 59 percent
heifers with 42 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 14 percent of the
offering. Slaughter cows and bulls sold 3.00-5.00 lower.
