Market Reports

As of July 21, 2017

Butcher cows traded at least $1-2 lower this week with top end cows trade up to $103. Bulls traded easier as well with good supplies. Top bulls to $119. Any younger cows that were suitable to be turned out to pasture to be bred were trading at a $10-15 premium to the butcher cows. With very few feeder cattle on offer this week it was tough to give accurate market analysis except to mark weaker trends. The crashing futures market combined with a stronger CDN $ has driven feedlot bids lower. Most classes traded at least $5 lower this week. Holstein steers traded lower as well with most mid weight cattle trading between $120-130.
