Feedlot In-Movement Continues to Set Record Lows


by Jerry Harrington, DTN Livestock Analyst


The November 1 Cattle on Feed report proved to be well anticipated with 

all three major categories lining up close with trade expectations. Note 

that big lot placement during October (2.18 million head) was the 

smallest in-movement for the month since the data series began in 1996.

Cattle futures are likely to open some higher on Monday when trade 

resumes, encouraged by confirmation of declining on-feed supplies and 

evidence of generally steady feedlot sales developing late this week.
