The calf market was steady to 4 higher this week on the calves   The cash prices on calves haven’t caught up to the futures market mainly because of health issues that’s been plaguing the calves getting them started and the lack of wheat is a big issue. The weaned and worked calves had lots of demand and bringing the premiums.The feeder cattle 2-4 higher on all of the yearlings   The heavy calves was steady. Stock cows are steady with demand still on young cows but not many of them around. Packer cows are still down due to the over abundance of them the plants just can’t keep up with the numbers of old cows that just keep coming.


   *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
