Decatur Livestock Market
MARKET REPORT
Consignments from June 29, 2015, from 247 sellers were 1414 head including: 22 Bulls, 223 Cows, 25 Calves, 173 Longhorns, 275 Stocker Heifers, 336 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 116 Feeder Heifers, 244 Feeder Steers. Average price = $1171. Last sale = $1210. A year ago = $1141. Last week’s decline in the commodity futures market carried over to the live cattle market this week with order buyers and feeders required to lower cost. Add to this the financial collapse of Greece that hit the streets Monday morning to which Wall Street responded with a 350 point drop in the DOW and the results includes lower cattle prices. Nationally feeder steers were steady to $3 lower; calves $4-$6 lower. The demand remains strong for the better kind but our offering this week was a mixed bag. A high ratio of recycled longhorns, short bred cows and unweaned calves. There were segments of the sale when I was reminded of the message of the Statute of Liberty – “Give me your poor, your huddled masses…the wretched refuse…”  WE WILL HAVE A SALE MONDAY, JULY 6 AND RECEIVE CATTLE FEATURING WEANED CALF SEGMENT ON SATURDAY, JULY 4.
