Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 9/26/2017

Receipts:  1168    Week Ago:  1200    Year Ago:  1175

   Compared to last week, steers and heifers sold steady to 5.00 higher.
Friday’s Cattle on Feed Report came in with placements higher than expected
which had cattle futures close to bottoming out across the board on Monday.
However you wouldn’t have known it by sitting in the seats ringside Tuesday
as buyers were very aggressive trying to acquire the few yearling cattle left 
coming off grass in this part of the country. Demand was good with a light to
moderate supply. The feeder offering was made up of near 52 percent steers and
bulls and 48 percent heifers with 44 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls
totaled 13 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows and bulls sold 2.00-3.00 
lower, except lean cows mostly steady.
