Market Notes

Compared to last week: Feeder calves were not tested this week, thus no trend is available. Todays sell featured bred cows and the weigh ups off the blue ribbon II special from yesterday. Weigh up cows sold on very good demand as packers were very aggressive as they purchased cows for immediate needs. Packers pushed all classes of slaughter cows sharply higher, with most sales 7.00-10.00 higher and instances of higher sales noted at times. Cows on a carcass basis today cost from 148.00-160.00. Many cows that packers were buying were blemished bred or late bred cows that they could buy away from ranchers. Feeding cows were not well tested this sale, however higher undertones were noticed. Slaughter bulls were too lightly tested to develop an accurate market trend, however higher undertones were noticed. Young age cows suitable to feed or rebreed sold generally steady in a narrow comparison. Bred cows sold on moderate demand for light to moderate offerings. Quality today was mostly average. A good crowd was on hand actively bidding on todays bred cow offering. Market activity was moderate to active.

Supply included: 42% Slaughter Cattle (97% Cows, 3% Bulls); 58% Replacement Cattle (16% Stock Cows, 83% Bred Cows, 1% Bred Heifers).
