Decatur Livestock Market
MARKET REPORT
Consignments from August 24, 2015 from 241 sellers were 1358 head including: 38 Bulls, 370 Cows, 40 Calves, 72 Longhorns, 174 Stocker Heifers, 301 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 121 Feeder Heifers, 242 Feeder Bulls/Steers. Average price = $1200. Last sale = $1201. A year ago = $1184. Last Thursday the futures contracts on cattle jumped up and we anticipated this week’s market to start the seasonal upper trend in prices. Then on Friday, Wall Street took a 500 point dip followed with a 588 point drop today. Of course, the commodity market followed with future prices dropping to the point of driving live cattle prices to double digit declines on calves and feeders. Many buyers went to the sidelines to wait for the financial dust to settle. In tight markets discounts on fleshy unweaned calves are greater. The bright spot is prices and demand for bred cows and pairs remain strong. Packer prices $1-$2 lower as exports are under pressure with China and other countries dealing with economics.  Consignments open for our 23rd annual “Fall Roundup” Saturday, November 14, 2015. To consign your cattle, call us at 940-627-5599 or email us at dlmteam@aol.com.
