7-10-18 We sold a total of 1059 head this week. 20 bulls, 89 lb cows, 91 bred cows, 78 cw/cf pairs, and 781 feeder cfs. Overall I'm going to call the market mixed this week compared to last week. Replacement cattle sold good with the top end of the cw/cf pairs around $1425. The top end of the bred cows were $1300 with the majority in the 850-1050 range. Butcher cows seemed to be a little cheaper, with #1 cows in the 62-70 range. High cow was 72. Feeders seemed to be better. I have to say good quality calves sold really well. Its that time of year that anything still carrying hair will be discounted!! 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.
