10-30-18 We sold a total of 755 head this week. 15 bulls, 44 lb cows, 80 bred cows, 10 cw/cf pairs, and 606 feeder cfs. Overall I'm going to call the market cheaper again this week compared to last week, although, a lot of it had to do with poor quality. Replacement cattle sold okay with the top end of the cw/cf pairs around $1250. The top end of the bred cows were $1100 with the majority in the 750-950 range. Butcher cows seemed to be cheaper again, with #1 cows in the 46-50 range. High cow was 53. Feeders seemed to be cheaper on the misfits. The good calves where a little cheaper too. I'd say $6-8 back from last week. The cheaper calves were the oddballs, short fats, and older calves. There is not really a good market for anything with small frame carrying a lot of flesh right now. 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.
