MARKET REPORT
Consignments from August 25, 2014, from 248 sellers were 1201 head including: 33 Bulls, 183 Cows, 57 Calves, 123 Longhorns, 188 Stocker Heifers, 286 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 113 Feeder Heifers, 226 Feeder Bulls/Steers. Average price = $1184. Last sale = $1176. A year ago = $823. The local market was better than anticipated, reversing the lower trend noted across the country towards end of the last week. Good selection and demand for roping size calves pushed prices to big gains that carried over for the 3-5 weights. Several buyers looking for replacement heifers provided strong market for 650-800# heifers. More demand than supply for bred cows and pairs.  WE WILL HAVE A SALE LABOR DAY, SEPTEMBER 1, FEATURING WEANED CALF SEGMENT.
