Decatur Livestock Market
MARKET REPORT
Consignments from June 27, 2016, from 193 sellers were 1080 head including: 24 Bulls, 254 Cows, 60 Calves, 71 Longhorns, 167 Stocker Heifers, 261 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 68 Feeder Heifers, 175 Feeder Bulls/Steers. Average price = $734. Last sale = $638. A year ago = $1171.  As a result of last Friday's nose dive of Wall Street and cattle futures in response to Britain pulling out of the Europe Union, the anticipation was that today's cattle market would also take a big drop.  We were wrong.  Today's national market on feeders was $4.00-$7.00 higher while calf market was lower, mainly because of heat stress.  Your local market went against the national trend with good gains on calves; with heat demand for 5-6 weights.  However, juicy unweaned calves were a hard sell, especially as the heat built up with no breeze to help moderate their body heat.  Bred cows and pairs steady.  Packers $1.00-$1.50 higher.  WE WILL BE CLOSED JUNE 30 – JULY 7. WEANED CALF SEGMENT TO FEATURED ON MONDAY, JULY 11.
