where livestock buyers and sellers meet

Market Reports

As of June 24, 2022

Butcher cows traded $3-4 lower this week as a shortened kill week around the corner was suggested as the reason for the slight drop. Most good fleshed cows traded from $101-105, with a few up to $108-109. Good Holstein cows brought $88-95. Bulls were $2-3 higher this week as good bulls hit $145.50. Feeder cattle traded at least fully steady this week to $3 higher.  Some good young bred cows and heifers on offer traded anywhere from $1650-1800 with calving dates nearby. Any cattle that were fleshy, plainer, late castrated, showing dairy, or horned were discounted quite heavily.  Producers must be wary not to throw too much feed at calves that are still nursing. Nothing stings more than pouring expensive feed into their calves only to get discounted heavily on fat grass weight cattle. From our sheep and goat sale on Wednesday June 15th we had lambs trading $15-28 higher than our previous sale. Cull sheep traded slightly lower with any over fat ewes or anything with excess wool being discounted quite heavily. Good meat goats traded with excellent demand around $3 lb.

Horned cattle are beginning to be discounted more and more all the time. If you want your cattle to bring a premium price they must be horn free.

If you are planning on selling calves in the next month or so, please call ahead to book your cattle with us. If we know how many cattle are coming it allows us to inform buyers so they can have adequate trucks available.
