We sold a total of 1161 head this week. 35 bulls, 143 lb cows,109 bred cows, 70 cw/cf pairs, 16 goats and sheep, and 788 feeder cfs. Overall I'm going to call the market stronger. Replacement cattle were fairly strong with mixed quality throughout. The top end of the cw/cf pairs around $1550. The top end of the bred cows were 1250 with the majority in the 850-1050 range. Butcher cows were higher again. #1 cows in the 92-96 range. High cow was 106. High kill bull was 118. Feeders were steady on lighter to medium weights with good condition, higher on heavy weights and a touch better on thin plainer calves, which made up about 40% of the calves we saw yesterday. Still a pretty good market on bigger steers. Overall the market felt a little better or at least steady on all types. Still fairly aggresive on good quality steers. 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.
