Decatur Livestock Market
MARKET REPORT
Consignments from October 20, 2014 from 311 sellers were 1760 head including: 42 Bulls, 294 Cows, 28 Calves, 150 Longhorns, 351 Stocker Heifers, 389 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 188 Feeder Heifers, 318 Feeder Bulls/Steers. Average price = $1233. Last sale = $1187. A year ago = $808. Compared to last week steer calves rebounded strongly, heifers mostly lost ground. Last week’s rain has brought on the emerging wheat crop and pushed up demand for light weight calves to go to preconditioning pens to get ready for wheat grazing. Unfortunately fat juicy calves are looking for excuse to get sick this time of year, backing down the payweight or worse. Weaned calves with respiratory vaccinations are in strong demand. High ratio of big fat packer cows, many of which were gobby fat low yielders, still dollaring out $1800-$2200. Limited selection on bred cows and only 5 pairs going back to country.  Consignments open for our 22nd annual “Fall Roundup”, Saturday, November 15, 2014. Call 940-627-5599 or email dlmteam@aol.com to consign your cattle today.
