Cattle Auction Report for 10/26/2015

Receipts:  780    Week Ago:  506    Year Ago:  749

   Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers sold mostly 
steady. A weak undertone was noted on the heels of a lower feeder 
cattle futures market for Monday. Harvest is underway, limiting the 
offering, with several small strings of cattle going through the 
ring. Favorable harvest conditions have farmers focused on their 
fields rather than moving cattle. There have been mixed corn yield 
reports for the Midwest, with some yields being reported as above 
average, others being average or below average. Demand moderate, 
supply light to moderate. Feeder supplies consisted of 50 percent 
steers and bulls, 50 percent heifers, and 41 percent feeders over 600
lbs. Cows and bulls 12 percent. Slaughter cows mostly steady to firm.
