where livestock buyers and sellers meet

Market Reports

As of February 8, 2019

Demand for butcher cows dropped this week as both of the major players in the war on cows were absent. Cows traded $7-8 lower this week.  High yielding grain fed cows traded from $73-76.  Bulls traded steady to last sale with a high of $94. Local and Western packers were the driving force behind the butcher market. We saw all classes of feeder cattle in excellent demand this week again. With a light run it was tough to test all aspects of the market. Larger run of feeder cattle expected for this week as many producers cancelled this week due to the extreme cold. Roughly 1500-1800 feeder cattle expected for the Friday February 15th sale.
