The last feeder cattle sale of the year happened on Wednesday for Hub City Livestock Auction in Aberdeen, South Dakota. There’s been good demand for calves. Since the fall feeder cattle run began, co-owner Steve Hellwig says the markets had a $3 to $5 gain each month, especially on the lighter calves. The market is offering a mixed bag for cattle. “The fat cattle market isn’t very good. There’s negative vibes on that end. On the other side, there’s a lot of bullish people who think the first quarter of next year’s feeder deal, despite having $4 corn, will hang in there well.”
