    Consignments from June 17, 2019, were 1048 head including: 27 Bulls, 328 Cows, 54 Calves, 97 Longhorns, 158 Stocker Heifers, 149 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 82 Feeder Heifers, 153 Feeder Steers.  The market got caught in the crossfire of corn futures going through the roof, which typically drives cattle prices to lower levels. The projected cost of gain with higher corn prices only leaves red ink flowing from the feed lots. This situation limits buying criteria to quality and condition. The alternative is to buy the new calf crop, at prices where the cost of getting them market ready can be recovered. Add the coming heat stress and fat, juicy bull calves are a high risk investment at this time. The market reflects this fact. One of the best return on investment in our industry is to castrate bull calves – typically this adds $5-$8/cwt to the sale price for 500#+ calves. The packer prices on bulls were $1 higher while cows were steady. Good demand for better kind of breds and pairs.
