We sold 6,760 cattle this past week in two sales. On Wednesday, January 25th, 2017 we sold 156 Butcher & Feeding Cows & Bulls, weather & road conditions kept the cow receipts considerably lower than expected. On Thursday January 26th, 2017 we sold 6,604 head of Stocker & Feeder Cattle. Compared to last week Steers were $1.00 to $5.00 lower & heifers were $1.00 to $5.00 lower. A lot of factors can be considered for the lower trend this week, pen conditions in the feedyards, a large winter storm in areas, a sharply lower CME & anticipated bearish cattle on feed report on Friday. Good news is look at how the actual fat cattle sale have stayed steady a long with the large weekly slaughter numbers.

We sold 2,041 Stocker & Feeder Cattle on Thursday April 28th 2016. In comparison to two-weeks ago both Steers & Heifers of all weight classes sold extremely lower. It’s been a long time since we have seen cattle change $7.00 to $20.00 lower in such a short time. Multiple factors have drug cash cattle down to a level that feeders have no other option but to buy cattle at a much lower price with any hope of a break even, or some profit to recover from the huge losses encountered even since late December of 2015. We have been through these cycles of extreme highs & well as extreme lows, focus on the good markets we have had over the past years and it will average out until it returns again.

We sold 6,198 cattle this past week in two sales. On Wednesday February 10th, 2016 we sold 336 Butcher & Feeding Cows & Bulls, followed by 5,862 Stocker & Feeders on Thursday February 11th, 2016. The market continues to struggle in finding something to rally not only the CME, but both the feeder & cash side of fat cattle. The recent blizzard that went across all of the state is still causing feed yards a lot of expense & just dealing with pen conditions has taken many of them away from buying replacements to fill back any empty pens. Compared to two weeks ago steers sold $3.00 to $8.00 lower & heifers were mixed, heifers under 700 lbs sold $2.00 to $6.00 lower & heifers weighing 700 to 800 lbs selling $1.00 to $3.00 higher.

We sold 8028 cattle this past week in 2 sales. On Wednesday, January 13th 2016 receipts of 756 Butcher & Feeding Cows & Bulls. Followed by 7,272 Stocker & Feeder Cattle on Thursday, January 14th 2016. Compared to last week the market was mixed, most classes sold on a weaker undertone, but at the same time the 500 to 600 lbs Steers sold $3.00 to $13.00 higher. All other weight classes of Steers sold $1.00 to $7.00 lower.  On the Heifer side of things, heifers weighing from 400 to 600 lbs sold mostly $8.00 to $19.00 lower with the Heifers weighing 600 to 750 lbs selling $3.00 to $13.00 lower.  Once again a lot of uncertainty in the market not just in the livestock but most all commodities continue to look for solid ground.
Next week we will sell around 7,700 head featuring some very fancy cattle of all weigh classes.

*****************************

We sold 9,036 cattle this past week, of which included 1,339 Butcher & Feeding Cows & Bulls on Wednesday, January 6th 2016. Followed by 7,697 Stocker & Feeder Cattle on Thursday, January 7th 2016.
These were our first Auctions for the year. In comparison to our last Feeder Sale in December all classes were extremely higher, largely due to the higher CME both on live & feeder cattle as well as fed cattle trading much higher than before the first of the year. This sale included our Annual Red Angus Influence section which saw many of those heifers again go back for replacements. Condition & flesh on all cattle sold was very good of which kept the buyers very interested the entire day. I will separate the Red Angus Replacement Heifers in the Recap so especially the heifer trend will be more accurate.
