Market Reports

As of January 21, 2022

 

Butcher cows traded fully steady this week to $2higher. Good cows bring $69-75. Bulls were also fully steady to a top of $106. Feeder cattle were relatively steady this week.  Grass weight steers and heifers continued to trade with excellent demand as local buyers are still active. Heavy feeders over 700 lbs were at least steady  to $1 higher this week. These cattle destined for feedlots were jeopardized by smaller kills at western plants due to covid and a stronger Canadian dollar has damaged export values. 
*** From our herd dispersal on Monday January 25th we saw excellent bred heifers weighing 1250-1375 bring $1650-1775. Good young cows brought $1600-1875, middle aged cows were mostly $1400-1600 and older cows from $1275-1400. Our next bred cow sale will be on Monday February 7th at 10am. We already have over 100 cows consigned including a good group of 35 black cows as well as a small dispersal of almost 40 cows. Most cows are only coming to town due to being short on feed.

Producers that leave their calves intact until spring will always be discounted for cattle that appear coarse headed or having heavy tassles that will indicate they are stags or improperly castrated. IF THEY LOOK BULLY HEADED THEY WILL BE DISCOUNTED!! CASTRATE EARLY AND PROPERLY TO AVOID BEING DISCOUNTED!! ALSO HORNED CATTLE WILL BE SORTED OFF ANY GROUPS THAT ARE GOOD ENOUGH FOR EASTERN ORDERS....THESE HORNED CATTLE COULD BRING $5 LESS THAN IF THEY WERE DEHORNED.

If there is any doubt or question on how to do it properly then please contact us and we will be happy to help!!
