where livestock buyers and sellers meet

Market Reports

As of September 25, 2020

Butcher cows traded $2 lower this week. Good cows brought mostly $76-82. Bulls were fully steady with limited supply with a top of $111. We had a good mix of calves and yearlings on offer this week. Yearlings traded with excellent demand as we saw Eastern and Western orders getting cattle bought. Good 800 lb steers traded up to $204 while the sisters weighing 800 brought up to $182. Good 500 lb str calves traded up to $229 giving the impression that once buyers are seeing enough calves to put loads together that the market will be healthy. We will be expecting larger numbers on offer as we get into the fall run so please call ahead to book larger consignments. This gives us the opportunity to tell buyers what we will have on offer. If you are wanting someone to come look at your cattle then please call one of our field reps and we would be more than willing to come give you an idea on value.

From our sheep and goat sale on Wednesday, September 16th we had a  decent run with 280 head on offer. Good lambs traded stronger this week as lambs under 80 lbs brought $240-253, and heavier lambs weighing 80-100 brought $225-235.Sheep traded very aggressively from $145-160 with a high of $163. Good meat goats traded from $280-300lb. Our next sale is on September 16th.
