 We sold a total of 1296 head this week. 42 bulls, 153 lb cows, 145 bred cows, 56 cw/cf pairs, 38 goats and sheep, and 862 feeder cfs.  Overall I'm going to call the market very strong. Replacement cattle were strong with a good selection throughout.  The top end of the cw/cf pairs around $2150.  The top end of the bred cows were $1,550 with the majority in the 950-1150 range. Butcher cows were steady with what we saw last week. #1 cows in the 110-115 range. High cow was 124. High kill bull was 130.  Feeders were a touch higher on lighter to medium weights with good condition, higher on heavy weights and steady on thin plainer calves, which made up about 40% of the calves we saw yesterday. Still a really good market on bigger steers. Overall the market feels strong or at least steady on all types.  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.
