The market has been fairly steady on most classes. The front end calves are holding demand way better than the plain cattle. The condition of the calves are a big factor on the price we’re seeing so many that are just too poor they can’t handle the wet muddy conditions in the grow yards that they’re having to end up being put in because of the severe lack of wheat grazing. The real light calves was cheaper this week and it’s all due to you just can’t keep from have huge mortality rates and big medicine bills on them in this wet muddy weather. The feeder cattle was steady on the cattle weighing 6-775. The bigger 800-900 yearlings 3-4 higher The stock cows was steady with the fancy young cows being 100 higher. Packer cows steady.

*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!

Thank you,

Red Bone
