Decatur Livestock Market
MARKET REPORT
        Consignments from October 16, 2017, from 277 sellers were 1776 head including: 30 Bulls, 293 Cows, 29 Calves, 105 Longhorns, 444 Stocker Heifers, 478 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 147 Feeder Heifers, 250 Feeder Bulls/Steers. Average price = $671. Last sale = $692. A year ago = $557.  There is very little basis for comparison to last week’s market because of wide variance in quality. This week we had high ratio of crossbred unweaned calves to present to buyers who had orders for #1 and #2 conditioned calves. High prices on 6-7 weight steers advanced $4.00-$5.50/cwt. The money was available for the right kind. Bred cows steady; not enough pairs to test the market.  Our 25th annual “Fall Roundup” is scheduled for Saturday, November 18. Sale will start at 12 noon. Consignments are open for replacement quality bred cows, bred heifers, open heifers and pairs. To consign your cattle, please give us a call at 940-627-5599.
