Weekly Recap
November 9, 2012

 The fed cattle market was $1.00 lower for the week as sales in the south were established at $125 to $126 with north prices lightly tested at $125 live and $195 to tops of $199 dressed. Trade volumes were limited nationwide. Boxed beef sales were slightly lower for the week. The aftermath of hurricane Sandy and buying at retail for Thanksgiving dulled beef demand this week. Feeder cattle prices were even to $2.00 higher, calves were ranged from $2.00 higher to $3.00 lower. Dry moisture conditions have again became critical in winter wheat areas as stockers look to add inventory and turn out cattle. Slaughter cows were $1 to $2.00 higher as supplies begin to slow as we go into the tail end of the fall run. Corn prices drifted sideways this week, very little news was in the market to drive values higher or lower.
