where livestock buyers and sellers meet

Market Reports

As of August 10, 2018

The roller coaster ride that is the butcher cows continued again this week as the $10 the cows gained last sale was gone for this sale.. Top cows were in the $78-83 range. Good bulls were also off as most traded in the $105-109 range. Feeding or young cows and heiferettes trade from $88-120. Yearling feeder cattle are beginning to show up now as many pastures are running out of grass with hot dry weather taking its toll. Lighter yearling cattle are trading steady to where they were most of the spring but heavy yearling cattle are trading $10-25 higher than the spring market.

If you are planning on selling calves in the next month or so, please call ahead to book your cattle with us. If we know how many cattle are coming it allows us to inform buyers so they can have adequate trucks available.
