Market Notes

Compared to last week: All feeder cattle were scarcely tested this week as this sale featured weigh up cows and bred cows. Weigh up cows sold on light demand for heavy offerings. Packers showed mostly very light to light demand for cows for immediate harvest. Slaughter cows sold mostly 4.00-9.00 lower on boning and lean cows. Breaking cows were too lightly tested to develop an accurate market trend, lower undertones were noticed. Cows suitable to feed sold with the best demand this week, however demand was lower than last weeks sale. Feeding cows sold 4.00-8.00 lower. Heavy supplies of cows continue to be seen as ranchers are out of hay and water in many locations and are forced to bring cows to market. Packers are also facing difficulties as they struggle with labor issues which is keeping them from running at full slaughter capacity, despite good demand from retailers. Many cows continue to be very thin this week as yields are reaching seasonal lows. Feeding buyers purchased many thin cows this week to hold until the market improves or to test for bred cows which buyers are running on cornstalks until spring. Slaughter bulls sold mostly 2.00 lower. Weigh up conditions were average to below average this week and slightly lower than last week. Young age cows sold unevenly steady. Most of these offerings are being purchased for southern fall breeding programs.
