Market Reports

 

Market Report for January 18th

We had 2675 cattle for this sale.  Steers 400-600# steady, steers 600-750# 10-12 higher, and steers 750-850# steady to 4 higher. Heifers 400-600# 4-6 higher and heifers 600-800# 8-10 higher.  Markets are known to ebb and flow but anymore its like a tidal wave up and down.  Momentum is a huge driver up and own.  Same feedlots same buyers and in some cases a 10-12 swing up and down and up in 3 weeks makes no sense but it’s the modern work of cattle marketing we now live in.  The first 3 weeks of the new year we sold some of the best cattle in the Midwest.
