where livestock buyers and sellers meet

Market Reports

As of May 7, 2021

 
Butcher cows traded fully steady to $1 higher this week as good exotic butcher cows traded from $90-96. Good young cows and heiferettes suitable to go on feed were in the $90-115 range again as has been the case for a couple months now.  Bulls were fully steady this week to $2 higher with tops trading up to $120. Feeder cattle traded $5-10 lower on all classes this week. High grain costs, the desperate need of moisture, a stronger Canadian dollar, and a stagnant fat cattle market, are all having a negative effect on the price of feeder cattle these days.
From our sheep and goat sale this past Wednesday we saw a very aggressive trade again on all classes. 
***We have added a Holstein Feeder Sale on Friday May 14th.
