Decatur Livestock Market
MARKET REPORT
Consignments from April 14, 2014 from 224 sellers were 1095 head including: 40 Bulls, 346 Cows, 81 Calves, 85 Longhorns, 171 Stocker Heifers, 181 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 65 Feeder Heifers, 126 Feeder Bulls/Steers. Average price = $1013. Last sale = $970. A year ago = $747. With the carryover of cows that did not meet the criteria for Saturday’s special sale, the ratio of cows/bulls to stockers/feeders pushed the simple average price $43 higher than last week and $348 higher than a year ago. Discounting that anomaly, the market remains steady with good demand especially for conditioned stockers ready to turn out on grass. Detailed look at your local market stocker prices this week vs last week when we featured weaned calves reflects the added value of preconditioned calves.  Our thanks to the consignors and buyers who made Saturday’s “Bringing in the Green” special sale really special.
