Average price = $1176. Last sale = $1183. A year ago = $824. The market settled down a bit in concert with Wall Street and global events. Cattle futures trending in positive direction due to limited cattle supply making it a seller friendly situation. Very few conditioned yearlings in the offering. 75% of steers/bulls offered being 5-6 weight suckling calves as were 55% of the heifers. With 100° temperatures to deal with these calves will need a lot of TLC.
