Ava- Douglas County Livestock Auction

Feeder Cattle Auction for 10/18/18

Receipts:  1549    Last Week:  1190    Year Ago:  1537

Compared to last week, steer and heifer calves 3.00 to mostly 5.00 lower, except some front-end steer calves under 500 lbs steady, not enough yearlings to fully test the market.  Slaughter cows and bulls 2.00 lower.  Demand moderate to light, supply moderate.  Not many takers for the high risk, un-weaned and short weaned calves, especially bull calves. Near 16 percent of receipts were replacement cows, slaughter cows and bulls.  The feeder supply included 38 percent steers, 47 percent heifers, 14 percent bulls, with 17 percent over 600 lbs.
