SUPERIOR LIVESTOCK AUCTION Dec. 5, Ft. Worth, TX

Cattle producers from 25 states consigned over 31,000 head of stockers, feeders and bred stock to the Superior Livestock satellite video auction.

The auction was held in, and broadcast live from the Historical Stockyards in Fort Worth, TX. Light steers and heifer calves sold steady to $5 lower on uneven trade compared to previous Superior Auction. 500 lb. steers and heifers traded $5-7 lower with most declines on unweaned offerings.

600 lb. weaned steers and heifers sold mostly $7 lower with further declines on non program or unweaned lots. All classes of yearling cattle sold $5-7 lower as futures and cash fed cattle prices offered little support.
