Market Update 11-12-18

 

Monday’s bred cow special featured over 1200 head of cattle, with 300 bred cows and heifers on offer and 600 feeders.  There was strong buyer turnout for our first bred cow special of the year, though interest was for young early calving cows, with solid and broken mouth cows bringing just above pound prices.  The low cull market has affected the bred cow market as expected, though bred heifers brought $1450, and young to mid age cows brought $1100-$1300 per head.  Slaughter cows were again softer, with an average price of $.47-$.49 cents per pound, and a high of $.56 cents.  Slaughter bulls were steady, bringing $.55-$.62 cents.  Feeders were also softer,  though good light calves were steady.  Health has become a concern for cattle feeders as lots have begun to fill, and there is an emphasis on weaned and double vaccinated calves.  500-600 weight steers brought $1.41-$1.63, while same weight heifers brought $1.14-$1.43.  600-700 weight steers averaged $1.35, up to $1.43, while heifers brought $1.17-$1.32.  Next week we’ll have a feeder special, and expect near 2000 head, and we will also have a large run of cull cows on offer.
