Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 10/10/2017
 
Receipts:  1319    Last Week:  1119    Year Ago:  1210
    
   Compared to last week, based on limited true comparisons steer calves sold
mostly steady and yearling steers and all weights of heifers sold with a higher
undertone. Mostly long time weaned yearling cattle this week compared to last
weeks run of calves and overall quality and condition was more attractive.
Nearby live cattle contracts are showing strength and closed with triple digit
gains fueling demand. Several consignments of heavier weight yearlings well
surpassed the lighter fleshier calves price per pound as demand was very good
for the yearlings and moderate for calves. As many know it can be difficult to
keep those short weaned cattle healthy during the month of October. The feeder
offering was made up of near 50 percent steers and bulls and 50 percent heifers
with 74 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 12 percent of the offering.
