Sask feeder cattle prices mixed but mostly lower during the past week

Saskatchewan feeder steer prices were mixed across the weight categories this past week.

Prices ranged from 243 dollars 80 cents for the 300 to 400 pound category to 173 dollars for the over 900 pound weight category.

Feeder heifers were mostly down for the week.

Prices ranged from 189 dollars 70 cents per hundredweight for the 300 to 400 pound category to 167 dollars 94 cents for the over 800 pound category.

Ministry of agriculture Livestock Development spokesman Lexi Hicks-Macza says the main cause of the price decline is higher barley and corn prices this past week.
