Select any sale from the list below to view full details:
Butcher cows traded $3-5 higher than before Easter. Top cows trade from $83-87. Good young cows and heiferettes suitable to go on feed were in the $90-115 range again as has been the case for a couple months now. Bulls were fully steady as the top bull fetched $115.50. Feeder cattle took a quantum leap as most classes were $5-10 higher than before Easter. the 550-600lb exotic cattle were $20 higher. Good char steers weighing 550-600 lbs traded from $250-260. Larger quality groups of cattle traded somewhat stronger than last week. Larger groups continue to bring a premium over single cattle. From our sheep and goat sale this past Wednesday we saw a very aggressive trade on all classes and anyone that was worried about the market dropping after Easter was wrong as all classes were at least steady to a bit higher.
