where livestock buyers and sellers meet

Market Reports

As of October 12, 2018

 

Butcher cows trade fully steady this week. Top cows bring $81-83. Good bulls were steady as most traded in the $100-104 range. Feeding or young cows and heiferettes trade from $88-120. Yearling feeder cattle traded barely steady again this week as cattle coming off grass look tough in many instances. Many open heifers are coming to the sales to prevent them them from running feed supplies short. Calves this week were under pressure again as many have lost their bloom due to poor grazing conditions over the last 2 weeks. With large volumes of calves moving at this time of the year buyers are very selective and large discounts are being made for stale or short cattle.
