Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 10/3/2017

Receipts:  1119    Week Ago:  1200    Year Ago:  653

   Compared to last week, few comparisons could be made. A majority of the 
calves were un-weaned and sold in small groups with the overall quality not
as attractive as usual. The best comparison was on 500-700 lb steers selling
steady to 5.00 lower. Cattle futures made a comeback Tuesday to gain back
everything lost on Monday. Demand was mostly moderate, good on higher quality
weaned steers. The feeder offering was made up of near 52 percent steers and
bulls and 48 percent heifers with 35 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls
totaled 10 percent of the offering. Slaughter cows and bulls sold 1.00 to
2.00 higher.
