Market Reports

As of February 16, 2018

Butcher cows traded fully steady this week as most good fleshed cows trade in the $81-84 range with the top cows trading up to a high of $86. Good young feeding cows and Heiferettes trade from $90-120. Bulls traded steady with a top of $101. Local grass orders continue to keep the light feeders trading very strong. This week heavy feeders traded barely steady to $2 lower. Keep an eye on the futures market as well as how the currency market fluctuates, as these are the two important factors that feedlots use in determining their cattle bids.
