Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 10/11/2016

Receipts:  1210    Week Ago:  653    Year Ago:  1138

   Compared to last week, steer and heifer calves under 500 lbs sold 5.00 
to 20.00 lower. No good comparisons of heavier heifers; 500-650 lb steers 
sold steady to 5.00 lower with no recent comparable sales of yearlings for 
a price trend. The majority of the calves brought to town were right off 
the cow or fleshy and saw steep discounts as the roller coaster of 
temperatures and health concerns continue, along with that the cattle 
market cannot find any footing and continues to trend lower in the futures 
market. Three loads of yearlings sold with good demand, moderate to light 
demand for everything else. Supply was moderate. The feeder offering 
consisted of near 46 percent steers and bulls and 54 percent heifers with 
57 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 20 percent of the offering. 
Slaughter cows sold 1.00-4.00 lower.
