Decatur Livestock Market
MARKET REPORT
Consignments from July 20, 2015 from 184 sellers were 969 head including: 19 Bulls, 202 Cows, 24 Calves, 80 Longhorns, 206 Stocker Heifers, 231 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 86 Feeder Heifers, 121 Feeder Bulls/Steers. Average price = $1125. Last sale = $1182. A year ago = $1119. The build up of box beef inventory as result of reduced exports as the global financial markets continue to churn is putting downward pressure on feeder prices with steers being $1-$5 lower. The normal July decline on calf prices is amplified as temperatures exceed 100°. Buyers are not real anxious to load up the trailers with bawling unweaned calves so calf prices also drop back $2-$6. Locally our heifer prices followed the national trend while steer prices, except for 2 and 5 weights, were higher than last week. Quality in light weight calves took a down turn this week and prices followed. Most of the bred heifers and cows were short bred and most pairs were 1st calvers with aggressive bidding for them.
