Cattle Market Report

The market this week was steady on calves and yearlings. The front end steers would be 3-4 higher. The demand was good for thin fleshed calves and yearlings.
The weaned calves still dominating the market over the fleshy bawling calves. The market hopefully will hold its ground as the big packers continue to back us up on our fat cattle. This week ended up with them bidding a dollar on fats. The box beef prices have been coming down the last few weeks basically since the government has looked into them. Now box beef is down and we’ll have a difficult road ahead of us trying to get any decent money for our fat cattle I’m afraid The packer cows are steady and stock cows was little cheaper which I think the rain will help that.

*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
