Market Overview August 29, 2014

341 total head went through the auction ring this week. Fed cattle slipped a little due to slower movement in the boxed beef trade. Slaughter cows reflect the smaller runs throughout cow country and continue their strong packer demand. Feeder cattle traded steady to strong as new crop calves begin their annual migration to the sale barn, a little early this year due to very strong prices. The harvest is coming soon and when it begins, feeder numbers at the sale barn will be short until the crop is in the bin. Buying feeders now ahead of the huge amount of feed coming at us makes very good sense. click for further detail
