Feeder cattle prices were mixed across Saskatchewan during the past week.
Provincial livestock economist Brad Marceniuk says feeder steer prices were mostly higher and feeder heifer prices were overall lower.
Benchmark feeder steers in the 500 to 600 pound category were down 6 dollars 55 cents at 237 dollars 83 cents per hundredweight.
On average, feeder steer prices rose over three dollars per hundredweight.
Marketings were 46 hundred head last week, down from 69 hundred sold the previous week but up from three thousand head sold the same week a year ago.
The price for D1, D2 slaughter cows declined 43 cents per hundredweight to average 109 dollars 40 cents, while the price of D3 slaughter cows declined 38 cents to average 97 dollars 50 cents per hundredweight.
In the U.S., live cattle futures had some downturn but beef cutout prices reached new levels not seen since early July 2015.
