   The calf market was fairly steady on all classes this week. The futures held strong this week which helped holding some much needed positivity with the panic setting in on most grass and wheat grazers that are dealing with the massive amounts of army worms that are taking care of any wheat that got in early and especially any extra grass that was left to start some calves on while waiting on the wheat. The feeder cattle was steady on all classes as well despite most all of the corporate yards being at full capacity.   The stock cow market is still getting better on the young cows with limited numbers showing up. Packer cows steady to 2 lower. We’re  taking consignment for our special cow sale November 14th.

*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
