Cattle Market Report

The market was steady this week on most all classes. The long weaned calves definitely has the most demand. The fleshy unworked calves still has limited demand due to the health issues were having with them in the growyards That won’t change much until we get some wheat to kick them out on instead of having to start them in growyards. The feeder cattle was steady on the yearlings. We’ve gained some ground on the futures but the yards are so full it’s hard to get them in. The stock cows was steady and the packer cows was steady. The special Wednesday on the cows that was 5 year old and younger the pairs from 1500-2100 and the breds from 1200-1800.
*We can work your cows and calves for you to help you maximize your profits when you sell your calves. I can’t stress the need for the calves to be worked and vaccinated. We sure don’t mind doing it for you. The $9 per head to work your calves is the cheapest money you can spend. Let us do the work for you and get you the most out of your calves. As always, we appreciate your business and its our pleasure to work for you! We appreciate your business!
