 Feeder Cattle Auction Report for 10/3/2016

 Receipts:  3,511    Week ago:    3,345    Year ago:  3,300

    Compared to last week, steers and heifers traded 10.00 to 15.00 lower,
 although 650-750 lb steers did pick up a little interest midway through the day
 to finish 5.00-10.00 lower. The local market opened sharply lower and struggled
 throughout the day to gain much ground, but not many signs of support can be
 found recently. Feeder cattle prices are  under extreme pressure after last
 week's fed cattle trade hit a new low for 2016. Cattle futures traded up, down
 and sideways throughout the day, settling with mixed results. Supply moderate
 and demand moderate to light.  Feeder supply included 51 percent Steers, 1
 percent Holstein Steers, 38 percent Heifers, and  10 percent Bulls. Feeder
 Supply over 600 lbs was 52 percent.
