Decatur Livestock Market
MARKET REPORT
        Consignments from  April 24, 2017, from 288 sellers were 1828 head including: 36 Bulls, 474 Cows, 77 Calves, 198 Longhorns, 318 Stocker Heifers, 408 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 144 Feeder Heifers, 173 Feeder Bulls/Steers. Average price = $697. Last sale = $712. A year ago = $793.  The USDA on feed report released Friday revealed more cattle in the feed lots than anticipated. As is typical, this information drives the futures market lower and the yellow caution light is turned on. The order buying companies will narrow the selection criteria and pull back the prices while the number crunchers evaluate the long range impact. The immediate impact is deeper discounts on #2-3 and unweaned calves of which we had a high ratio this week. The 2-6 weight steers stood up to the pressure with steady to higher prices as compared to last week – heifer prices were $3-$6 lower. Bred cows and pairs tracking quality. Packer prices $2-$3 lower.
