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.

Drought, fires, floods, regulatory overreach, skyrocketing input costs and record herd shortage are all issues cattlemen and women have unfortunately become very familiar with over the past couple of years. NCBA's Cattlemen to Cattlemen will take a closer look at the current state of the beef industry during a live call-in show on Tues., Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m. on RFD-TV.
This special episode of NCBA's Cattlemen to Cattlemen will allow us to answer questions, listen to producer concerns and discuss strategies that are crucial in helping ranchers have successful cattle operations, while continuing to produce the safest, highest quality beef in the world.
Viewers can ask the panel questions by calling 1-888-824-6688 or by e-mailing their questions to C2C@beef.org. They are also encouraged to join NCBA by calling 1-888-824-6688 or visiting NCBA's website.
