We sold a total of 1392 head this week. 29 bulls, 97 lb cows, 119 bred cows, 23 cw/cf pairs, 16 goats and sheep, and 1108 feeder cfs. Overall I'm going to call the market steady. Replacement cattle were fairly steady. The top end of the cw/cf pairs around $1300. The top end of the bred cows were 1200 with the majority in the 700-900 range. Butcher cows were steady. #1 cows in the 68-72 range. High cow was 78. High kill bull was 97. Feeders were steady on lighter to medium weights with good condition, steady on heavy weights and cheaper on the plainer calves, which made up about 40% of the calves we saw yesterday. We are seeing discounts for calves still carrying hair. Overall the market was still pretty good all the way around. 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. Visit the USDA Market Report for a full detail report. Call for more info.
