Butcher cows traded much lower this week. In most cases $3-5. Top cows up to $81. Bulls were fully steady this week on limited supply. Top bulls to $95. Feeder cattle continued to trade with excellent demand. Yearling cattle traded very strong as numbers and quality start to diminish. Calves traded at least fully steady this week.. Lots of light calves trade over $3cwt. Good local orders are keeping the calves strong while most of the yearling cattle are moving to Alberta feedlots. As the weather begins to take its toll on pastures and calves show some wear and tear its important for producers to watch for runny noses and droopy ears if they are marketing calves. Calves that look under stress will likely be discounted through the ring.
CALVES THAT ARE RECENTLY WEANED AND STALE LOOKING ARE BEING DISCOUNTED UP TO $40cwt.
