The calf market this week weakened with the futures being down yet another week. If the corn market continues to get higher most likely the futures will keep trending lower. The calf market was 2-4 lower on most classes of calves with the bigger heifer calves having the least demand over the other sizes of new crop calves. The thin fleshed and weaned calves still have good demand and the light calves are still stronger demand than their bigger brothers and sisters. The feeder cattle was steady on the yearlings the fleshy calves was 3-4 lower. Stock cows steady with lots of old cows still coming not many young cows to choose from. The packer cows 4-6 higher on all the big carcass cows especially on the high yielding cows. Next Friday we’ll have a load of 3-5 year old black cows that are fall calvers.

 *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
