Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 10/06/2015
 
Receipts:  724    Week Ago:  311    Year Ago:  851      

   No true price comparisons available to last week. Quality was greatly improved 
over last week with several big strings of yearlings on tap as well as some 
groups of weaned calves with all the work done. Maybe some light at the end of the 
tunnel, at least seeming so here at the local barn, as the market was indeed much 
better than anyone expected it to be. Cattle futures closed sharply higher with 
several months limit up. Extremely dry conditions throughout the region, great for 
harvest but not for fall pasture. Slaughter cows 5.00 to 9.00 lower. Supply and 
demand moderate. Cows and bulls accounted for 13 percent of the total offering. The 
feeder supply consisted of 51 percent steers and bulls and 49 percent heifers; 64 
percent of all the feeder cattle weighed over 600 lbs.
