Market Update 3-12-18


Monday’s regular cattle sale featured 300 head, with a light run of good light calves and a steady to stronger slaughter cow market.  Slaughter cows averaged $.73-$.74, with a top price of $.81, with a good run of even cows.  Slaughter bulls were steady, topping out at $.91, with an average of $.80 on a run of thinner bulls.  Feeders were in good demand, with 400-500 weight steers bringing $1.74 to $2.03 per pound, while same weight heifers brought $1.42-$1.66.  500-600 weight steers brought $1.63-$1.81, with heifers bringing $1.40-$1.72.  This Saturday March 17th Stockland will be hosting the Lundgren Charolais bull sale with lunch starting at 11:00 a.m. and the sale to follow.  We will have a feeder sale on Monday, March 19th, and expect a good run of feeders and cows.  If you have any questions or would like to consign, give me a call anytime.   Thanks,  Kale McGuinness 509-703-3981
