Decatur Livestock Market
MARKET REPORT
        Consignments from August 13, 2018, were 1564 head including: 34 Bulls, 332 Cows, 85 Calves, 154 Longhorns, 324 Stocker Heifers, 373 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 106 Feeder Heifers, 156 Feeder Steers.  Locally 4-6 weight heifers went against the regional market by fetching $2-$5/cwt higher prices. Other calves followed the regional trend to lower prices as did the feeders. Most bred cows were 1-5 months bred with limited demand for going back to country. The 1-3 month breds up to 2 year old were flushed and sent to feedyards. Big drop off in quality of pairs from last week. Packer prices were $2 higher.  Thank God for giving His creation a much needed drink – it will be nice to see some green grass again.
