Market Update 05/16/2022

Monday’s feeder special featured over 600 head of cattle, with a good selection of calves and yearlings.  Slaughter cows were lower compared to last week, with a top price of $.89 cents per pound, and an average price of $.79-$.82 cents per pound.  Slaughter bulls were steady to slightly lower, topping out at $1.17, and averaging $1.03-$1.08 per pound.  Feeder cattle were lower monday, with commercial feeders filling up and concerns about grain prices slowing demand.  Grass calf buyers were strong on smaller groups of calves and yearlings.  600-700 weight steers brought $1.54, with an average of $1.33.  Same weight heifers brought $1.42, and averaged $1.21.  800-900 weight steers topped at $1.43 with an average of $1.30, while heifers brought $1.32 and an average price of $1.17.  Next Monday, May 23, we will have an all class cattle sale, and will feature a herd dispersal of over 100 pair at 1 p.m.  Mostly black/bwf running age cows with calves at side, all cows will be sorted by age and all will be pre vaccinated.  If you have any questions or would like to consign, please give us a call anytime.
