Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 10/4/2016

Receipts:  653    Week Ago:  1175    Year Ago:  1138

   Compared to last week, a light test of steers and heifers
sold mostly 3.00 to 10.00 lower, up to 15.00 lower on upper
five weight steers. Most producers are waiting to market their
cattle in hopes of better days ahead as current prices have
many cow-calf producers with figures only at break even or in
the red. Live and feeder cattle had a strong day on the board,
however it will take a lot more than one day to restore much
confidence in this market. Demand was good for 400-550 lb and
yearling steers, light to moderate for everything else. Supply
was light. The feeder offering consisted of near 57 percent steers
and bulls and 43 percent heifers with 35 percent over 600 lbs.
Cows and bulls totaled 15 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows
sold 1.00-3.00 lower.
