Market Update 10-16-17



Monday’s regular cattle sale featured a good run of cows and mixed feeder calves, with a continued strong market for calves and a steady market for cull cows.  Slaughter cows brought $.60-$.65 cents on the average, with the best of the cows bringing $.75 cents per pound.  Slaughter bulls were steady to slightly lower, averaging $.72-$.75 cents, topping out at $.87 cents per pound.  Feeders were up on a good market with good buyer attendance.  Steers weighing 500-600 pounds brought $1.45 to $1.67, and 700 to 800 brought $1.49 to $1.67.  Heifers were off a bit from the steers, with 600-700 weight heifers bringing $1.33-$1.61.  Next week we’ll have a feeder special, with a good run of calves expected and a strong market.  Our bred cow special will be Saturday, November 17th.  If you have any questions or would like to consign, give me a call anytime.  -Kale McGuinness 509-703-3981
