where livestock buyers and sellers meet

Market Reports

As of June 18, 2021

 
Butcher cows traded $3-5 higher this week with good kill cows up to $105. Good young cows and heiferettes suitable to go on feed were in the $90-110 range again as has been the case for a couple months now.  Bulls were fully steady this week with good bulls trading up to $128.50. Feeder cattle traded fully steady this week as good light steers and heifers continued to be in excellent demand. Heavy feeders were $3-4 higher again this week with a few more numbers around for buyers to put loads together. Optimism about lower feed prices and better prices for fat cattle has feedlots eager to purchase more feeder cattle.  We saw decent pairs trade for basically the sum of the cows value plus the value of the calves. Dry conditions are making buyers reluctant to increase their herd size. From our sheep and goat sale on Wednesday June 2nd we saw our first major drop in lambs in about 18 months. Most classes were $30-40 lower than previous sales. These drops have been occuring in both western and eastern sales as of late. Our next sheep and goat sale will be on Wednesday July 7th at 1pm. This sale will tie in nicely with the next Muslim holiday on July 20th.
