Market Reports

As of February 5, 2016

Butcher cows traded another $2-4 lower this week with only a select few cows bringing over $1/lb. Bulls also traded $3-5 lower as the top bull brings $135. Feeder cattle were also under pressure this week as our dollar strengthened and the futures market weakened at weeks end. Heavy feeders were $4-5 lowere as 900 lb strs barely broke the $2 mark. Good 700 lb strs were $7-8 lower with only a few fancy groups bringing over $230. Grass type cattle traded only slightly lower with good local demand keeping the prices up. There was lots of local support on heifers as producers begin to source replacement types. From our sheep and goat sale Wednesday we couldnt make an assessment of market trends due to very limited numbers.
