NATIONAL DAILY DIRECT SLAUGHTER CATTLE - NEGOTIATED PURCHASES - Summary
Roundup for: Wednesday, 11/07/2018

On Wednesday, negotiated cash trade was limited on light to moderate demand in
Nebraska and the Western Cornbelt. A few dressed purchases have traded at 180
.00 in both regions, however not enough for an adequate market test. Trade was
mostly inactive on light demand in all other feeding regions. The latest
established market in the Southern Plains was last week with live purchases at
116.00. In Nebraska for the prior week live purchases traded from 114.00-116
.00 with dressed purchases at 180.00. For the previous week in Colorado live
purchases traded from 115.00-116.00. Last week in the Western Cornbelt live
cash purchases traded mostly at 114.00 with a few dressed purchases at 180.00.

Domestic source only. Live sales based on net weights FOB the feedlot after a
3-4% shrink. Dressed sales based on hot carcass weights delivered to the plant.
