Market Notes

Compared to last week: a much larger offering this week than last week with few comparable weight classes, best test on steers 600 to 650 lbs 1.00 to 3.00 lower, and best test on heifers 550 to 600 lbs mostly steady. Moderate to good demand for today's large calf offering including many loads and packages with best demand seen for light weight, light fleshed cattle which can fit into grass programs or backgrounding programs with a post summer finish date. Quality similar to last week with many attractive calves to choose from, and flesh mostly light to moderate again this week. Several packages of unweaned calves offered, these were discounted at times. A moderate market today with fewer buyers attending the sale due to the weather. Very high winds across the region today and mixed precipitation to the east are impacting travel. Calves sold today will need to spend the night and perhaps tomorrow at the sale barn as it is too windy to put trucks on the road. Next feeder cattle sale is Thursday, January 21, featuring many Black and Red Angus replacement quality heifers.

Supply included: 100% Feeder Cattle (70% Steers, 30% Heifers). Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 64%. AUCTION This Week Last Reported 1/7/2021 Last Year Total Receipts: 3,559 2,437 2,015 Feeder Cattle: 3,559(100.0%) 2,437(100.0%) 2,015(100.0%)
