Market Reports

As of January 22, 2021


Butcher cows were a little bit easier this week with good exotic cows trading up to $69.50. Good young cows and heiferettes suitable to go on feed were in the $80-105 range. Bulls traded traded fully steady to $94. Local orders entered the fray this week and grass weight steers and heifers traded $15-20 higher. We saw a huge jump in the price of 500lb cattle as steers weighing tight to 500 brought $240-250. Good heifers weighing tight to 500 traded from $190-210. All other classes of feeder cattle traded at least steady to $5 higher. Higher grain price worries were erased by solid jumps in the futures market over the past week. Optimism has returned with higher fat cattle prices. 
Very strong sale on all classes on January 6th Sheep and Goat Sale! See prices below! From the bred cow sale on Monday January 18th we had good quality mature cows trade from $1350-1525. Smaller frame cows traded from $1050-1250. Fancy bred hfrs traded from $2000-2150. 

****Also just added another complete herd dispersal of 175+ cows from TS Johnson & Son from Riverton On March 15. These cows are also mixed colours with excellent bull power behind them. These cows are due to start calving late April and early May. (Please see pictures when you click on the calendar date) 

****AS PER NEW MANDATE BY THE PROVINCIAL GOVT AND THE MLMA THE AUCTION MARTS WILL BE ABLE TO CARRY ON WITH CATTLE AND SHEEP SALES GOING FORWARD BUT NO SPECTATORS OR CONSIGNORS WILL BE ALLOWED. MASKS MUST BE WORN DURING THE PROCESS OF DROPPING CATTLE OFF ON RECEIVING DAYS. 

As we head further into the fall run we ask buyers with larger consignments to call ahead to let us know you're shipping....This gives us the opportunity to tell buyers what we will have on offer. If you are wanting someone to come look at your cattle then please call one of our field reps and we would be more than willing to come give you an idea on value.

 

***DO NOT WEAN YOUR CALVES AND EXPECT TO SELL THEM 2 WEEKS LATER! THIS IS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE A PRODUCER CAN MAKE! NOBODY WANTS TO BUY STALE CALVES. If you do wean them, then sell them the next day, or two months later! 

***STARTING NOVEMBER 4th AT OUR SHEEP AND GOAT SALE, WE WILL NO LONGER BE ALLOWED TO PERMIT SPECTATORS IN THE STANDS AND OUR RESTAURANT WILL BE OPEN TO ONLY TAKE-OUT DUE TO THE COVID OUTBREAK IN MANITOBA. CONSIGNORS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED IN, AND BUYERS MUST NOTIFY US AHEAD OF TIME IF YOU ARE WANTING TO ATTEND THE SALE. MASKS MUST BE WORN AND SOCIAL DISTANCING WILL BE ENFORCED.

Producers that leave their calves intact until spring will always be discounted for cattle that appear coarse headed or having heavy tassles that will indicate they are stags or improperly castrated. IF THEY LOOK BULLY HEADED THEY WILL BE DISCOUNTED!! CASTRATE EARLY AND PROPERLY TO AVOID BEING DISCOUNTED!! ALSO HORNED CATTLE WILL BE SORTED OFF ANY GROUPS THAT ARE GOOD ENOUGH FOR EASTERN ORDERS....THESE HORNED CATTLE COULD BRING $5 LESS THAN IF THEY WERE DEHORNED.

If there is any doubt or question on how to do it properly then please contact us and we will be happy to help!!
