Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 09/26/2016
 
Receipts:  1656    Week Ago:  1931    Year Ago:  1688
 
   Compared to last week, a light test of weaned steer calves under 600 lbs 
mostly 450-550 lbs sold steady, with 600-750 lb steers trading 3.00-5.00 lower 
and yearling steers over 800 lbs were not tested with last week.  Weaned and 
quality offering of heifer calves under 600 were lightly tested with a few 
weaned 4 weight heifers selling near steady, heifers over 650 lbs were not 
tested with last week but three pot loads of 6 weight heifers sold with good 
demand with good weighing conditions.  Demand remains best on yearlings with 
unweaned calves selling with light to moderate demand.  Cattle futures again 
have had a tough time of finding positive territory over the last couple of 
trading sessions with last week's fed cattle trade mostly 3.00-4.00 lower on 
live sales.  Slaughter cows accounted for near 6 percent of the total receipts.  
Feeder cattle consisted of 55 percent steers and bulls, 45 percent heifers and 
near 65 percent weighing over 600 lbs.
