Market Reports

As of August 5, 2020

 We already have 100+ yearlings booked for our next sale on August 14th. Yearling prices will be strong as many feedlots will be looking to fill empty pens after a long hot summer. If you are looking to market any type of cattle this fall please don't hesitate to call us for prices and market trends. Winnipeg Livestock Sales is run by order buyers so we can relay what feedlots and backgrounders alike are looking for. 
***WE HAVE ADDED ANOTHER BUTCHER AND FEEDER SALE ON FRIDAY AUGUST 21st. This will help accomodate any producers that are running out of pasture due to drought conditions or grasshoppers.
