OKC West Livestock, El Reno, Oklahoma, reported receipts of 9,804 head of feeder cattle selling on Nov. 11, compared to 4,172 head the previous week and 8,104 head a year ago, according to the USDA-Oklahoma Department of Agriculture Market News, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Compared to the previous week, the feeder steers were lightly tested the previous week, especially on heavier weights but where trends could be established they were mostly selling $1 to $2 higher. The feeder heifers were trading $8 to $10 higher. The demand was good to very good for all classes on limited comparable sales. The higher cost of feedstuffs, mostly corn, has buyers more active on heavier weight cattle. The steer and heifer calves were selling $4 to $10 higher with most advances being seen on lighter weight cattle that are ready to be turned out on wheat pastures. The demand was good to very good. The quality was average to mostly attractive. The flesh conditions were a driving factor as several drafts were fleshy and or full. The supply included 100% feeder cattle with 56% steers, 0% was dairy steers, 43% was heifers and 1% was bulls. The feeder cattle supply weighing over 600 pounds was 71%.
