Butcher cows were $4-5 higher this week as top cows brought up to $92. The switch to every second week has made packers much more aggressive on the live market. Bulls were fully steady to last week topping out at $125. Feeder cattle traded with excellent demand on all classes. With very few feeder cattle on hand it's tough to quote prices but strong undertones were evident going forward.
From our sheep and goat sale on Wednesday, July 8th we had just over 400 head on offer and all classes sold with excellent demand. Good cull sheep traded from $158-170. Heavy lambs traded $240-256. Lighter lambs brought $240-265. Goats were very strong this sale with nannies bringing $250-330/HD and good kid meat goats bringing $350-400/cwt.

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!!
