Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 10/03/2016
 
Receipts:  376    Week Ago:  341    Year Ago:  490
    
   Compared to last week, a light test of steers and heifers sold
with a lower undertone. Nearby live and feeder cattle contracts
were down the limit on Friday with fat cattle dipping below a 1.00.
Several producers are holding on and waiting to see if there is any
hope of a better market later this fall and winter. Mostly small
groups of calves were offered. Starting to get a little bit dry across
western Missouri and a forecasted shower later on in the week would be
welcome. Demand was moderate with a light supply. The run of feeders
included near 53 percent steers and bulls, 47 percent heifers and 14
percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 19 percent of the offering.
