Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 10/17/2016
 
Receipts:  917    Week Ago:  1887    Year Ago:  1922
 
   Compared to last week, a light test of steer calves under 600 lbs traded 
mostly 3.00-6.00 lower with weights over 600 lbs not well tested with last 
week’s part load and load lots of yearlings.  Heifer calves weighing 400-500 lbs 
sold 2.00-5.00 lower on a light test, 500-600 lb heifer quality was much better 
this week with many weaned and several blk top quality packages traded with a 
firm to higher undertone, and a pot load of 710 lb yearling heifers sold near 
steady with last week.  Demand was moderate with supply light as many producers 
passed this week due the lower trends and with plenty of grass and hay available 
is taking a wait and see attitude.  CME cattle futures have found some support 
over the last two trading days but last week's fed cattle trade fell below the 
100.00 mark ranging from 95.00-99.75.  Slaughter cows accounted for near 12 
percent of the total receipts.  Feeder supply consisted of 55 percent steers and 
bulls, 45 percent heifers and 40 percent weighing over 600 lbs.
