Initial measures of buyer concentration levels in two major feeder cattle markets are reported. Buyer concentration levels in feeder cattle markets appear to be large and some weak evidence that concentration levels have increased since 1987 was found. Concentration levels vary seasonally and appear to be a function of the types of buyers (feedlots, farmer feeders, etc.) participating in the markets.
