Cattle Market Report

The market this week was steady on most classes. The much needed rain this week slowed number up a bit but helped the calf market as well as the packer cows. The front worked calves had good demand. Lots of good weaned calves this week. The ones with condition had very good demand on all sizes. The futures are trying to keep on a upward trend that’s finally giving some hope to the stocker calf buyers. The feeder cattle was steady and maybe 1-2 higher on the thinner fleshed steers weighing 6-700. Packer cow market was plenty good again this week it looks like a good time to cash in some of the old cows to me, which they’re still plenty of. The stock cow market is steady just very limited numbers of young cows still.
