Decatur Livestock Market
MARKET REPORT
        Consignments from June 19, 2017, from 207 sellers were 1087 head including: 19 Bulls, 176 Cows, 27 Calves, 137 Longhorns, 181 Stocker Heifers, 234 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 96 Feeder Heifers, 217 Feeder Steers. Average price = $720. Last sale = $720. A year ago = $658.  USDA quoted the regional market on feeders as $1-$4 lower with moderate demand and the calf market trending lower as the futures market continued the downward movement that started 2 weeks ago. The order buyers are singing the blues as their buying parameters are more restrictive. Locally we had $3-$6 gains on 6-7 weight heifers and 7-8 weight steers. Pairs were $10-$60 higher with packer cows steady to $3 higher and bulls $1-$2 higher. Most of our producers from the northern counties had smiles on their face after seeing .8-1.5 inches of rain this morning. We had enough to settle the dust and cool the temperatures.
