Market Reports

Market Report for Thursday December 13th

We had 2802 cattle for this sale.  Demand on feeders is back.  Maybe muddy lots are slowly getting better.  Lingering harvest finally over. Fat cattle market and cattle futures showing some life.  Whatever, it’s a better market.  Steers under 600# 8-15 higher.  Steers over 600# 2-5 higher.  Some 6-8 higher.  Heifers under 550# 10-12 higher and over 550# 5-8 higher.  Some top sales from last week as good as today but overall prices high all around.  More depth to the market.  Cattle in general have been through some cold – wet – mud and are probably tougher and healthier than 2-5 weeks ago, as a general rule.
