Market Reports

As of April 9, 2021

 
Butcher cows traded $3-5 higher than before Easter. Top cows trade from $83-87.   Good young cows and heiferettes suitable to go on feed were in the $90-115 range again as has been the case for a couple months now.  Bulls were fully steady as the top bull fetched $115.50. Feeder cattle took a quantum leap as most classes were $5-10 higher than before Easter. the 550-600lb exotic cattle were $20 higher. Good char steers weighing 550-600 lbs traded from $250-260. Larger quality groups of cattle traded somewhat stronger than last week. Larger groups continue to bring a premium over single cattle. From our sheep and goat sale this past Wednesday we saw a very aggressive trade on all classes and anyone that was worried about the market dropping after Easter was wrong as all classes were at least steady to a bit higher. 
***OUR REPLACEMENT QUALITY HEIFER SALE WILL BE HELD ON FRIDAY APRIL 16th.

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!!
