Average price = $1210. Last sale = $1316. A year ago = $1002. Many producers are still struggling to gather their cattle out of muddy fields with abundant grass so the offerings at auction is pretty eractic and hard to put together large lots of uniformed quality cattle – the buyers need them but supply is lacking. The trend for feeder steers and heifers was steady to $3 higher. Fancy light weight calves in good demand – others selling at prices reflecting their quality. Most pairs were older cows with 250-300# calves selling $1900-$2650. Very few young bred cows with 1-2 month BMF bred heifers selling $1500-$1750. Good news is that for 1st time in longtime no county in Texas is classified as severe drought.  We will have regularly scheduled sale Memorial Day, May 25.
