Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 10/30/2017
 
Receipts:  1014    Week Ago:  370    Year Ago:  1291
 
   
   Compared to last week’s run of mostly calves, this week the majority of the
offering was bigger drafts of yearlings. There were very few true comparisons to
last week, however steers and heifers sold with a higher undertone except heifer
calves trading steady. A quality run of cattle was on offer. Feeder Cattle
futures opened sharply higher but calmed down later in the day to close up on
either side of a dollar. Demand was good with a heavy supply. The feeder
offering was made up of near 74 percent steers and bulls, 26 percent heifers
with 87 percent over 600 lbs. Cows and bulls totaled 14 percent of the offering.
