where livestock buyers and sellers meet

Market Reports

As of March 5, 2021


Butcher cows took a dip in price this week as most classes were $5 lower. Top cows brought $80-84.  Good young cows and heiferettes suitable to go on feed were in the $90-127 range again. Bulls also were $3-4 lower as the top bull fetched $117. Feeder cattle traded fully steady to last weeks trade. Larger quality groups of cattle traded somewhat stronger than last week. Larger groups continue to bring a premium over single cattle. 

From our sheep and goat sale on March 3rd we saw another very aggressive trade on all classes of sheep, lambs, and goats. Cull sheep rebounded $20-25 to trade over the $2 mark once again. All classes of lambs traded $10 higher and good kid goats traded up to $4/lb. 

Our feeder sale on Friday March 12 will be a combined Special Angus Sale as well as a Special Holstein Feeder sale as well.
