MARKET REPORT
        Consignments from  February 5, 2018, from 248 sellers were 1653 head including: 33 Bulls, 223 Cows, 32 Calves, 163 Longhorns, 480 Stocker Heifers, 411 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 150 Feeder Heifers, 161 Feeder Steers. Average price = $681. Last sale = $650. A year ago = $674. We had 501 head for the weaned segment with good response from the buyers. Prices were $5-$7 higher on 2-4 weight steers and $3 higher on 5-7 weights. 8+ weight steers were $1-$2 lower. 3-6 weight heifers mostly steady to $2.50 higher and 7-8 weights $3 higher. Overall quality of cows reflected a lot of culling going on. Most breds were old cows – the kind that have demand when wheat is abundant, but not much interest in our current situation. They are low yielders so tend to drive the packer market lower on average. The better young pairs sold mostly $1375-$1500.
