Market Notes

Compared to last week: Steers from 550 lbs to 699 lbs were mostly 3.00 to 5.00 lower, steers from 750 lbs to 799 lbs were 2.00 to 3.00 higher, steers from 800 lbs to 849 lbs were generally 4.00 to 6.00 lower, Heifers from 500 lbs to 799 lbs were 3.00 to 5.00 lower with instances of 8.00 lower. No other comparisons were available. Todays offering was long time weaned and most had two rounds of preconditioning shots. Flesh conditions ranged from light fleshed hay fed cattle to moderate plus cattle coming out of grow yards. Several long strings offered buyers the opportunity to purchase multiple loads of one owner cattle, up to nine loads in one sort. There were plenty of part loads and packages available to make loads out of as well. Best demand for the lighter fleshed cattle more suitable for summer grazing programs. Fairly active market as order buyers, internet bidders and several farmer feeders were competing for todays offering. Compared to previous sales there was a softer demand for several consignments of replacement heifers. Buyers remain cautious as market uncertainty is on everyone's mind. Next feeder sale will be Friday, March 25, 2022. Stay safe and eat beef.
