9-19-17 We sold a total of 1390 head this week. 26 bulls, 99 lb cows, 146 bred cows, 48 cw/cf pairs, and 1071 feeder cfs.  Overall the market was mixed yesterday.  Replacement cattle were fairly steady to a touch better with the top end of the cw/cf pairs around $1500.  The top end of the bred cows were $1550 with the majority in the 900-1100 range. Butcher cows were a little cheaper partly due to the fact that we didnt see the same quality high yielding cows as last week,  with #1 cows in the 70/74 range. A few higher yielding cows around 76.  Feeders seemed to be steady.  Starting to see a little bit more activity on the lighter calves. Still seeing a discount for  calves carrying hair although its not quite as bad now that its cooling off a little bit. Overall, I feel like the market has seen it's highs and will be back and forth on in to the summer but overall probably cheaper.   Odds, shorts, and plains still seeing a discount. Please make sure you have minerals out for your cattle. It's hard enough for cattle to handle the heat and stress and they will discount price for cattle showing mineral deficiency.  Visit the USDA Market Report for a full detail report.  Call for more info.  Thanks for your business!!!
