where livestock buyers and sellers meet

Market Reports

As of January 17, 2020

Butcher cows traded steady to $1 lower than last weeks trade. Good fleshed beef cows traded from $77-83. Bulls traded to a top of $101 on very limited supply and quality. Feeder cattle seemed to trade very steady to $5 higher in spots this week, with excellent demand on all classes. Smaller numbers on offer may have hindered loads getting put together but with the cold weather passing we expect larger numbers moving forward. Several cancellations this week due to cold.

From wednesdays sheep and goat sale we saw cull sheep trade $10 higher than before Xmas with good ewes and rams bringing up to $133. Lambs were also $10-15 higher than in December with good 90-100 lb lambs bringing $205-213 and light 70 lb lambs bringing up to $248. Goats traded just steady with good meat goats trading from $180-200 cwt.
