Market Update 1-14-18

 

Monday’s regular cattle sale featured 350 head of cattle, mostly cows, and a small run of feeder calves.  Slaughter cows were $1-$2 lower on average, with a top steady at $.58 cents per pound, and an average price of $.49-$.51.  The slaughter cow market is still being depressed by an oversupply of cull dairy cows, and decreasing margins for feeder cows.  Slaughter bulls were steady to lower, on thinner, low yield bulls.  Bulls brought $.55-$.63 cents.  There was a light test on feeder cattle, though the market was solid.  400-500 weight steers brought $1.45 to $1.55, while 700-800 pound steers brought $1.34-$1.39.  Next weeks feeder special is shaping up to be a good sized sale, with an excellent run of mostly weaned yearlings and calves.  We expect a good jump in prices with a bigger run of calves.  If you have any questions or would like to consign please give me a call anytime.  -Kale McGuinness (509) 703-3981
