Market Reports

Market Report for Thursday April 12th

We had 2505 cattle for this sale. Impossible to make a market comparison from two weeks ago as last sale consisted mostly of loads of yearlings and green hard 6-7 weight cattle while this sale had a big percent of soft fleshy fall calves. Todays selection of Fall calves had big price swings.  A weaned, moderately fleshed set of calves sold dollars higher than unweaned fat calves.  Calves need more shots than just one round of black leg in Fall to command top prices.
