Cattle Market Report

The market was 3-5 higher on weaned calves with good demand. The thin fleshed lighter cattle had plenty of demand, especially on the front end sets of steers. We had lots of long weaned cattle this week that weighed 4-6 that had good demand. The feeder cattle were steady on steers and 2 lower on heifers. As the feed prices continue to soar up I can’t see the feeder cattle doing anything but losing ground. If the fat cattle futures don’t starting going up to off set the feed prices the feeder cattle can’t get any better. The stock cows were steady. We are still having tons of old cows with not many young cows to pick from. Packer cows were 4 higher on the big carcass cows and bulls. February 13th and 20th we are hosting livestock forage and pasture improvement classes.
