 Thursday - August 17, 2017 - Special Feeder Sale

 

870 Feeder Cattle sold on a very active market on a high-quality offering. Demand was very strong even though the Merc has been anything but friendly trading lower nearly every day. The promise of more than ample feed has been a big factor in feeding optimism. The run was heavy on yearlings with seven full load lots offered. Numbers were a little lower than the same special last August as several producers are holding on hoping for better days ahead.
