Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 09/29/2015
 
Receipts:  311    Week Ago:  469    Year Ago:  346    

   Compared to last week, a very light offering of feeder steers and heifers sold 
fully 10.00 to 15.00 lower. Slaughter cows 5.00 to 8.00 lower. Pretty much every 
sector of the cattle market still trying to find a solid bottom and at this point 
“sharply lower” is an understatement. Supply and demand light. Cows and bulls 
accounted for 40 percent of the total offering. The feeder supply consisted of 78 
percent steers and bulls and 22 percent heifers; 21 percent of all the feeder 
cattle weighed over 600 lbs.
