Market Reports

As of October 18, 2019

 

Butcher cows were $1-2 lower this week as numbers increased over last weeks sale. Top cows traded up to $84. Bulls also traded $2 lower with a top of $115. Good yearling cattle traded aggressively again this week with most weights well supported. The calf market was very selective this week as several groups of calves were showing the effects of last weeks snow storm. Calves with runny noses, droopy ears, and general poor condition were discounted heavily. Good calves that were still carrying their bloom brought a premium over calves that had lost their flesh and shine through the storm. Eastern quality large framed calves are already showing a premium over British style calves.
