Decatur Livestock Market
MARKET REPORT
        Consignments from October 8, 2018, were 1625 head including: 39 Bulls, 503 Cows, 50 Calves, 111 Longhorns, 278 Stocker Heifers, 368 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 98 Feeder Heifers, 178 Feeder Bulls/Steers.  USDA quoted the regional market with feeders $3-$4, 5-6 weight calves $6-$8 and unweaned calves $10/cwt lower. Some of this is in response to the recent on feed report but the big concern, as it relates to calves, is the temperature swings, especially with forecast for widespread rain. The risk is reduced if calves are long weaned and vaccinated against respiratory disease. Large numbers of cows continue to come to town. Most today were older short breds or opens. An indicator of their condition is the high ratio that did not breed back on time or were open, ie 35% of cows tested today were open. Several of the consignments were due to army worms decimating pastures. Packer prices on cows were $2-$3 lower as they deal with the glut of cattle in the food chain.
