Tulia Livestock Auction, Inc. - Tulia, TX - Thursday � 10/12/2017

Receipts:  3211    Last Week:  1277    Year Ago:  1702
 
   Compared to last week:  Feeder steers and heifers were lightly tested 
on previous week's sale; however, a higher undertone was noted.  Trade 
was active on very good demand.  Heavy receipts are typical for fall runs 
but also paired with a couple weeks of hampered cattle movement due to 
muddy conditions.  Slaughter cows and bulls made up 3 percent, 0 percent 
replacements and 97 percent feeders.  Feeder supply consisted of 57 
percent steers and bulls, 43 percent heifers.  Approximately 68 percent 
of the offering weighed over 600 lbs.
