Cattle Auction Report for 10/27/2015

Receipts:  2163    Week Ago:  1488    Year Ago:  1419

   Compared to last week, steer calves under 600 lbs mostly 10.00 to 
15.00 lower, instances 20.00 lower. Steer calves over 600 lbs no 
recent test, however sharply lower undertone noted on short weaned 
calves. Steers 600-800 lbs 8.00 to 10.00 lower, over 800 lbs 2.00 
to 3.00 lower. Heifers under 500 lbs mostly 5.00 lower, 500-600 lbs 
sharply lower undertone, over 600 lbs mostly steady on comparable 
sales. With the wet and cooler weather for Tuesday, buyers were 
hesitant and heavily discounting short weaned calves. Most were 
looking for the long weaned, preconditioned feeders. With feeder 
cattle futures continuing to trend lower, prices in the barns are 
starting to feel the effects. Demand moderate, supply moderate. 
Feeder cattle supply consisted of 59 percent steers and bulls, 41 
percent heifers, and 49 percent feeders over 600 lbs. Cows and 
bulls 11 percent. Slaughter cows mostly 2.00 to 3.00 lower.
