Compared to Thursday, slaughter steers sold
mostly 2 00-3 00 lower on Mondav, with the
very light Tuesday run trending mostly steady
with Monday Receipts were traditionally light
on both days as Christmas is on Thursday
Packers will be dark for at least one day this
week, which was evident in the light early week
demand The current finished market is still
pretty good if it stays in the high 80 l s and low
90‘s, however if it gets below those levels the
producers who were paying 116 00-118 00 for
heavy 7 weight feeder cattle a few months ago
may have a hard time breaking even The
Board is still supportive in the nearby months,
with the spot January live cattle contract clos
ing at 92 35 on Thursday However, futures are
in the 70‘s when you get as far out as this sum
mer There were not enough slaughter Holstein
steers or slaughter heifers for a market test
Lean slaughter cows sold mostly 25 to 100
lower, while fleshier cows sold between
2 00-4 00 lower The combined two-day run in
cluded 152 head of slaughter steers, 31 head of
slaughter heifers, 409 head of slaughter cows, 17
head of slaughter bulls and 22 head of feeder
cattle On behalf of the USDA I want to wish
everyone a Merry Christmas I hope you all
have a good holiday season
