Today beef cattle $8.00 lower on averages provided by our computer software and the Holsteins were $2.00 lower.

3 weeks ago today fed cattle were roughly steady to the week before; 2 weeks ago today fed cattle were $7.00 to $8.00 higher; 1 week ago today fed cattle were $8.00 lower; today when compared to last week fed cattle were $7.00 lower. If you live in the city or are not familiar with ...livestock prices, a semi load of cattle today would sell for approximately $8,400.00 less than they would have sold for 2 weeks ago. If you can tell me why that makes sense I'd like to hear it.

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 own use.
