Market Notes

Compared to last week light weight steers under 600 lbs sold 9.00 to 10.00 lower, flat 6 weight steers sold steady, over 700 lbs sold 3.00 lower. Heifers under 700 lbs sold 7.00 lower, over 700 lbs sold mostly 3.00 lower. Demand was moderate to good for the heavy supply on offer. Quite a few, light fleshed cattle of all weights on offer. Ranchers continue to seek out reputation or top-quality heifers to breed for replacement heifers. Few, dispersals and herd reductions of Sandhills cows on hand and buyers sought these top genetics to add to their own herds. Light rain changing to snow at the close of the weekend. Not a lot of moisture was noted but something is better than nothing. Hopefully Mother Nature will continue to provide much needed moisture across the state. Nebraska feedlot sales sold 2.00 to 4.00 on live sales at mostly 140.00 and dressed sales traded 2.00 to 3.00 lower from 224.00 to 225.00.
