Butcher cows traded another $3-4 higher on the top end cows trading up to $157 on big, thick, high yielding kill cows. Good dairy cows were in the $126-32 range. Morning deliveries were only $2-3 back this week with less cows around. Bulls were also fully steady to $3 higher this week but with fewer bulls on hand they topped out at $181. We had a few fat cattle trade this week in the $195-200 range. Demand for feeder cattle is excellent on all classes. Cow/calf pairs also traded with excellent demand as producers put faith in the markets staying strong for the near future. Good pairs traded from $2900-3450. Local producers that are looking to acquire cattle for grass are urged to act soon as numbers will start to decline as grass season approaches. Please call ahead to book your cattle for our Friday sale or if you want us to come out and appraise your cattle before selling we would be happy to help!
