Butcher cows continue their epic rise as top kill cows trade from $134-139.50. Local and Western orders were certainly the driving force. Heiferettes trade from $135-150. Bulls also traded $5-6 higher to a top of $163.50. Demand for feeder cattle is excellent and buyers are aggressive. As always, good clean straight headed cattle are fetching premiums over short, plain or coarse headed cattle. 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!

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!!
