**Weekly Market Report**

This week we sold 3,919 cattle of all classes in two sales.  Wednesday, September 19, we ran 472 head of Butcher & Feeding Cows, Bulls & Heiferettes through the ring. For our Special Stocker and Feeder Sale on Thursday, September 20, we marketed 3,447.  Bidding was very active both on the seats and on the internet.  Like two weeks ago the day was meet with a very light supply of bawling calves, with most of the head count from yearling cattle and preg checked open heifers coming off grass. Steers weighing over 750 lbs sold $3.00 to 7.00 higher and heifers over 650 lbs sold $2.00 to 11.00 higher compared to two weeks ago. No comparison on calves off the cow due to light test both weeks.

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.

This week we sold 8,587 head of cattle in three sales.  Monday, December 11th was our Special Bred Stockcow and Bred Heifer Sale with receipts totaling 2,509. On Wednesday, December 13th, we sold 1,004 Butcher & Feeding Cows, Bulls, & Heiferettes. 
The market was $2.00 to 8.00 lower for the Special Stocker & Feeder Sale on Thursday, December 14th.  Despite this, there was a large crowd and buyers from several different states where in attendance to watch 5,074 head crack the gate.  It’s now safe to say we are in a lower market trend on the stockers and feeders, due to the fact of the declining CME Live and Feeder contracts and lower cash bids on fat cattle. In all, there is good demand and interest from buyers, just at lower levels at the current time.

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.
Thanks to all our sellers & buyers for your confidence in us to market your livestock here at Ogallala. We have carried on a tradition of being fair to both the seller & buyer for the past 65 years.

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.
