Decatur Livestock Market
MARKET REPORT
Consignments from August 22, 2016, from 128 sellers were 611 head including: 10 Bulls, 123 Cows, 30 Calves, 79 Longhorns, 99 Stocker Heifers, 158 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 40 Feeder Heifers, 75 Feeder Bulls/Steers. Average price = $690. Last sale = $731. A year ago = $1200.  6-8” of rain in our marketing area Friday/Saturday tends to reduce the number of cattle coming to town, but late Sunday and Monday morning a few folks were able to bring in some cattle. Nationally, the market on feeders was $4-$6/cwt lower and a cautious trend on calves as last week’s futures contracts could not maintain positive tractions. Your local market had higher prices on 2-4 weight calves with 5-6 weights $2-$3 lower on high prices and $2-$4 higher on weighted average. We did not have enough feeders to test the market as 80% of calves were 2-5 weights. Projected bumper corn crop and late August rains should help on cost of gain and open the door for higher cattle prices.
