Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 12/15/2015
 
Receipts:  360    Week Ago:  822    Year Ago:  708

   Very light feeder offering this week but a few comparable sales of steers 
and heifers sold 5.00 to 10.00 lower. Slaughter cows 3.00-6.00 lower. More market 
volatility this week has left most everyone involved in the cattle sector ready for 
a holiday break. Supply light and demand light to moderate. Cows and bulls 
accounted for 35 percent of the total offering. The feeder supply consisted of 46 
percent steers and bulls and 54 percent heifers; 30 percent of all the feeder 
cattle weighed over 600 lbs. 

***This is the last sale of 2015 at Missouri Valley Commission Company. No sale 
December 22nd or 29th. The barn will reopen to receive cattle Sunday, January 
3rd for the Tuesday, January 5th sale. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the 
MDA-USDA Market News Staff.***
