Decatur Livestock Market
MARKET REPORT
Consignments from September 15, 2014, from 273 sellers were 1376 head including: 39 Bulls, 252 Cows, 61 Calves, 79 Longhorns, 264 Stocker Heifers, 315 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 132 Feeder Heifers, 233 Feeder Bulls/Steers. Average price = $1233. Last sale = $1200. A year ago = $696. Nationally the market is steady with upper price pressure on better quality cattle. This week we had some producers dispersing or reducing their inventory because of shortage of water or grass while others were aggressively trying to add to their herd because of improved water and forage conditions. New orders are being released to the buyers for stocker calves to get ready for wheat grazing. Weaned calves vaccinated against respiratory illness are in high demand.  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.
