where livestock buyers and sellers meet

Market Reports

As of July 10, 2020

Butcher cows were $4-5 higher this week as top cows brought up to $92.  The switch to every second week has made packers much more aggressive on the live market. Bulls were fully steady to last week topping out at $125. Feeder cattle traded with excellent demand on all classes. With very few feeder cattle on hand it's tough to quote prices but strong undertones were evident going forward.

From our sheep and goat sale on Wednesday, July 8th we had just over 400 head on offer and all classes sold with excellent demand. Good cull sheep traded from $158-170. Heavy lambs traded $240-256. Lighter lambs brought $240-265. Goats were very strong this sale with nannies bringing $250-330/HD and good kid meat goats bringing $350-400/cwt.
