Eastern Missouri Livestock Auction

Yearling steers over 700 lbs sold mostly $5-14 lower on comparable sales with yearling heifers lightly tested but selling with a lower undertone. Slaughter cows sold mostly $3-5 lower. Markets this week were sharply lower as cattle futures traded with sharp losses and fed cattle prices continue to trade lower pressuring feeder cattle prices. Feeder cattle buyers were very cautious and selective on quality and condition and quick to discount anything unweaned and carrying too much flesh. Slaughter cows accounted for near 12 percent of the receipts with the feeder supply near 62 percent steers, 38 percent heifers and 52 percent weighing over 600 lbs.
