Market Reports

As of August 10, 2018

The roller coaster ride that is the butcher cows continued again this week as the $10 the cows gained last sale was gone for this sale.. Top cows were in the $78-83 range. Good bulls were also off as most traded in the $105-109 range. Feeding or young cows and heiferettes trade from $88-120. Yearling feeder cattle are beginning to show up now as many pastures are running out of grass with hot dry weather taking its toll. Lighter yearling cattle are trading steady to where they were most of the spring but heavy yearling cattle are trading $10-25 higher than the spring market.

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!!
