This week we sold 7,409 cattle of all classes in two sales. Wednesday, October the 17th was the first big fall run of 832 head of Butcher and Feeding Cows, Bulls and Heiferettes.  The Special Stocker and Feeder Sale on Thursday October the 18th, totaled 6,577 head.  The market had a softer undertone due to the weather changes over the last week.  Feedyard pen conditions and calf health has been notice in a large area of the country.  Regardless, dollar amounts per head on steers are still very bright with the heifers back a ways.  Compared to the light run a week ago the steer and heifer calves sold $4.00 to $8.00 lower.  Buyers and feeders alike were still active in the bidding and are eager to advance their inventory in the weeks to come.

****************************
This week we sold 3,330 cattle of all classes in two sales.  Wednesday, October 3, we sold 514 head of Butcher & Feeding Cows, Bulls & Heiferettes with a light run of Stockcows and Pairs. For our Special Stocker and Feeder Sale on Thursday, October 4, the head count was marked at 2,816.  The sale was met with the first test of spring calves off the cow and the market was active on those classes.  Compared to two weeks ago, the yearling steers sold $2.00 to $6.00 higher and the yearling heifers sold steady to $2.00 higher. Buyer optimism is very strong looking forward, due to strong gains on both the Live and Feeder Futures over the last two weeks, predicted cost of gains going down the road, and current packer cash bids.

*****************************
This week we sold 5,784 head of cattle of all classes in three sales.  On Wednesday April 11th, we sold 2,379 head during our Special Stockcow and Cow/Calf Pair Sale, along with Butcher & Feeding Cows, Bulls & Heiferettes.  3,405 head sold on Thursday April 12th, for the Special Stocker and Feeder Sale.  Outstanding quality was showcased throughout the day on fall calves, stockers, and feeders.  Higher prices were paid on all weight classes for steers and heifers compared to two weeks ago.  The outlook on the feeder cattle inventory is shrinking, giving us a positive price projection going forward.
