We sold a total of 456 head this week. 23 bulls, 62 lb cows, 20 bred cows, 14 cw/cf pairs, 12 goats and sheep, and 325 feeder cfs. Overall I'm going to call the market mixed this week and lightly tested all the way around due to weather again. Replacement cattle were pretty good with a lot of activity on good young heavy bred cows. The top end of the cw/cf pairs around $1350. The top end of the bred cows were 1000 with the majority in the 650-850 range. Butcher cows were steady to a touch better. #1 cows in the 68-72 range. High cow was 78. High kill bull was 112. Feeders were a touch higher on lighter to medium weights with good condition, steady on heavy weights and a little cheaper on the plainer calves, which made up about 20% of the calves we saw yesterday. We still saw a huge discount on oddball and missfit calves. Odds, shorts, and plains still seeing a discount. Please make sure you have minerals out for your cattle.
