5-8-18 We sold a total of 1186 head this week. 19 bulls, 75 lb cows, 134 bred cows, 70 cw/cf pairs, and 888 feeder cfs. Overall I'm going to call the market steady to a touch better this week compared to last week. Replacement cattle sold good with the top end of the cw/cf pairs around $1350. The top end of the bred cows were $1200 with the majority in the 850-1050 range. Butcher cows seemed to be steady, with #1 cows in the 63-70 range. High cow was 73. Feeders seemed to be steady to a touch higher. I have to say good quality calves sold really well. The cheaper calves were the oddballs, short fats, and older calves. There is not really a good market for anything with small frame carrying a lot of flesh right now. Odds, shorts, and plains still seeing a discount. Please make sure you have minerals out for your cattle. Visit the USDA Market Report for a full detail report. Call for more info. Dont forget about our 50 year anniversary sale Tuesday, June 5th! We will be giving away a 20' Rollin S cattle trailer. All you have to do is sell cattle with us to be entered in the drawing and you must be present to win.
