Decatur Livestock Market
MARKET REPORT
Consignments from July 27, 2015, from 179 sellers were 688 head including: 27 Bulls, 114 Cows, 7 Calves, 66 Longhorns, 96 Stocker Heifers, 169 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 86 Feeder Heifers, 123 Feeder Steers. Average price = $1224. Last sale = $1125. A year ago = $1161. Lots of producers are taking advantage of abundant grass to delay shipping their calves so the selection this week was less than normal. This makes for a tough day for the buyers who are given tighter buying criteria. The national market responded to last week’s 4 day run down of the futures contracts with feeder cattle $5-$10 lower and calves $3-$5 lower. Your local market experienced higher prices on 2-5 weight calves as several local producers were in the market for grass grazers. 6-7 weight heifers were $3 higher. Only a handful of pairs offered. Bred cows tracked quality with prices $500-$700 higher on fancy young cows and $100-250 on midage. Packer prices steady. 1st Monday of each month provides you the opportunity to high light your preconditioning program by consigning your calves for the weaned calf segment. Minimum requirements: weaned at least 45 days and bring in on Saturday.
