MARKET REPORT
 Consignments from April 16, 2018, from 256 sellers were 1280 head including: 40 Bulls, 254 Cows, 77 Calves, 123 Longhorns, 271 Stocker Heifers, 293 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 74 Feeder Heifers, 148 Feeder Bulls/Steers. Average price = $658. Last sale = $655. A year ago = $712.  The regional market followed the gains of feeder futures with prices $2-$5 higher. 5-6 weight steers at DLM were $1-$3 higher while heifers were $6-$7 higher. High percentage of calves were the late fall and early spring calves coming off of cows with moderate demand as most of the buyers’ orders are for grass ready calves. Several strings of 2 weight calves rang the bell as ropers are gearing up. Packers were $2-$3 lower. Good demand for pairs pushing prices higher.  Make plans to attend our 26th annual “Bringing in the Green” special sale, Saturday, April 21, beginning at noon. The pairs are exceptionally nice and the breds are also high quality. If you need 1 or 100, you will have a good selection to choose from.
