Decatur Livestock Market
MARKET REPORT
Consignments from December 15, 2014, from 207 sellers were 1023 head including: 17 Bulls, 211 Cows, 15 Calves, 149 Longhorns, 208 Stocker Heifers, 251 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 50 Feeder Heifers, 122 Feeder Bulls/Steers. Average price = $1228. Last sale = $1235. A year ago = $780. The market followed the trend of feeder futures market (the Wall Street for cattle investors), which begun downward slide last week and continued Monday. Nationally the market experienced double digit setbacks on feeder cattle as well as stocker calves. Locally we had a few consignments of good preconditioned 5-6 weight calves that sold steady with last week’s market. Most others tracked the national trend. Bred cows were $150-$200 higher and pairs steady. We anticipated the packer market to be aggressive but many of the cattle were not higher yielders.  We will be closed December 22 and December 29. Next sale will be Monday, January 5 – featuring weaned calves. Will begin receiving cattle Saturday, January 3. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
