Any attempt to make
a market comparison is impossible when selling 137 Fed
Cattle and 2 Cows! For those living in town, you
can't begin to imagine what the past 48 hours has been
like "out in the country". Hilly roads and uneven
cattle yards covered in 1/4" of ice topped off with rain
has made a real adventure just walking around much less
attempting to sort or move livestock then loading them
on a trailer then attempting to safely navigate the ice
to the nearest hard surface road.
All buyers were present today and the demand was good.
Beef steers topped at $122.00 and Holsteins topped at
$89.00 which would be in a general anticipated range of
an even larger sale.
Stay safe ...... there will be better days ahead.
It's a common
misconception that livestock markets are in the business
of competing with each other ..... on the contrary
...... livestock markets are in the business of
providing competitive markets for small, medium and
larger producers. The information placed on this
page and our web site is available so you can see what's
happening locally. Markets fluctuate and so does
the quality of livestock so you'll need to make your own
judgment in that regard.
We're proud to be in the livestock auction marketing
business and we're just as proud to work for and with
the best people in the world.
The price reports
on this page (and others) are placed here using
something like Microsoft Excel .... and I believe you
can "copy and paste" into your Excel program for your
