3-20-18 We sold a total of 1193 head this week. 22 bulls, 80 lb cows, 130 bred cows, 60 cw/cf pairs, and 901 feeder cfs. Overall I'm going to call the market a little cheaper this week compared to last week. Replacement cattle were cheaper mainly due to lower quality, the top end of the cw/cf pairs around $1550. The top end of the bred cows were $1 with the majority in the 950-1150 range. Butcher cows seemed to be steady to a touch cheaper, with #1 cows in the 60-70 range. High cow was 74. Feeders seemed to be 10-15 cheaper on some and somewhat steady on others. I have to say good quality still sold really well. The cheaper calves were the oddballs, short fats, and older calves, although not as cheap as last week. There is not really a good market for anything with small frame carrying a lot of flesh right now. They were being knocked back as much as .60-.70 from the good 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. Dont forget about our replacement sale Friday, March 23rd 7:00 PM!
