Compared to last week, yearling feeder cattle sold mostly steady to 5.00 higher with instances 6.00-8.00 higher. Direct trade was mostly 4.00-7.00 higher, regaining most of last week’s losses. Some of the sharpest gains were noted on heavy feeders weighing over 800 lbs. Feeder calves started the week steady to 5.00 lower then by mid-week turning mostly steady to spots 5.00 higher where calves were available. Discounts continue in many cases on fleshy unweaned bawlers mostly weighing under 500 lbs that tend to melt in the hot sun. A higher auction market for yearlings with prices stronger than many expected, after last week’s lower trends seen around the auction circuit.
