Market Reports

As of October 18, 2019

 

Butcher cows were $1-2 lower this week as numbers increased over last weeks sale. Top cows traded up to $84. Bulls also traded $2 lower with a top of $115. Good yearling cattle traded aggressively again this week with most weights well supported. The calf market was very selective this week as several groups of calves were showing the effects of last weeks snow storm. 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. Eastern quality large framed calves are already showing a premium over British style calves.

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!!
