Decatur Livestock Market
MARKET REPORT
Consignments from November 17, 2014, from 174 sellers were 698 head including: 20 Bulls, 213 Cows, 36 Calves, 40 Longhorns, 105 Stocker Heifers, 150 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 52 Feeder Heifers, 82 Feeder Bulls/Steers. Average price = $1307. Last sale = $1269. A year ago = $814. Cold weather and forecast of snow kept most producers hovering around the fireplace instead of shipping cattle, therefore most buyers had orders that they could not satisfy. The market fundamentals remain constant with strong demand for calves to go to wheat pasture. We had inconsistent quality today and supply with prices responding accordingly. Packer prices bounced up as they need to gather some inventory to ride through next week short sale schedule.  WE WILL HAVE A SALE NEXT MONDAY, NOVEMBER 24.
