Average price = $1189. Last sale = $1233. A year ago = $807. The market was more selective with good demand for quality but moderate for Xbreds and plainer calves as well as 2-3 weights. Strong demand for replacement quality heifers pushed prices for 7 weights significantly higher. Bred cows and pairs steady. Packer cows higher but tempered by anticipation of increased supply as fall culling gets underway.  Consignments open for our 22nd annual “Fall Roundup”, Saturday, November 15, 2014.
