The market was steady to 2 higher on calves. The weaned calves had good demand and definitely topping the market on all classes. We are still having issues finding places to put calves with not much wheat grazing but we’re seeing some guys starting to buy so hopefully next few weeks we’ll start getting some kicked out on wheat. The feeder cattle market is good on the yearlings even though the yards are full mostly because they have taken a lot of these lighter cattle that should’ve been on wheat. The stock cows are steady still not many young cows lots of old cows. And the packer cows would be 2 lower with lots of them hitting now. Our last sale of the year will be December 20th and we will start back on January 3rd.

*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!
