Market Notes

Compared to last week bawling steer calves sold steady to 5.00 higher. Yearling steers sold mostly steady with 900 lbs offerings trading 6.00 higher. Bawling heifer calves sold unevenly steady. Yearling heifers sold steady to 3.00 higher. Slaughter cows sold 3.00 to 5.00 lower and slaughter bulls sold 1.00 to 3.00 lower. Demand was moderate to good. Heavier supply of slaughter cows on hand this week across the state. Some of the bawling calves had fall vaccination shots. Some of the large, rough terrain pastures across the state can make it difficult to gather herds can implement a fall vaccination program. However, cattle genetics, high quality and eye appeal of the calves pays off in the end with or without fall shots. Spotty rain showers across the state with a tick of snow reported in high elevations. Hay producers are finishing up on third cutting of hay in the East and on second cutting in the West. Both areas are hoping for one more cutting of hay before putting hay harvest machinery in the shed for the winter.

Supply included: 76% Feeder Cattle (51% Steers, 49% Heifers); 23% Slaughter Cattle (85% Cows, 15% Bulls); 1% Replacement Cattle (100% Stock Cows). Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 74%.
