Market Reports

As of March 24, 2017

Butcher cows traded at least $2 higher today with top end cows trade up to $101. Bulls traded $2-3 higher as well with top bulls up to $120. Feeder cattle traded very aggressively again this week on all classes. Midweight and heavy feeders continued to climb as futures creep higher. Mid weight steers and heifers traded $3-5 higher this week. Grass type feeders continued to trade aggressively to local and Western and Eastern orders.. Good 500 lb steers trade up to $231. It appears that the US market has rebounded enough that some classes of feeder cattle are moving that way.

We will be holding our special Holstein feeder sale this week in conjunction with our regular feeder sale. We will be having a special grass cattle feeder sale on Friday April 7 as well. There is a few good groups already consigned for this sale and if you are looking to join us for these sales please call us to confirm. Mike at 204-807-0747, or Scott at 204-782-6222.
