Market Reports

As of December 6, 2019

 

Butcher cows traded another $1-2 higher this week as high yielding exotic cows topped out at $74.  Butcher bulls were steady as top bulls bring $92-97. Feeder cattle sold fully agressively on all classes. Some of the mid weight cattle brought new highs that we havent seen in recent weeks. Good black steers weighing tight to 500lbs brought up to $228, 600lb steers brought up to $214 and good black steers weighing 640 topped out at $210. The sisters typically traded $25-30 back. Calves with runny noses, droopy ears, and general poor condition were discounted heavily. Good calves that were still carrying their bloom brought a premium over calves that had lost their flesh and shine through the storm. Buyers are looking for an animal with bounce in their step! Eastern quality large framed calves are already showing a premium over British style medium frame calves.

***200 fancy black steers and heifers consigned from one producer for this Fridays sale.

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!!
